Squeek, squeek

Postby Zrock [OP] » May 24 2018, 8:38pm

Ok this is driving me nuts. I have a squeeking coming from the front of my 03. Only hear it below 20km and cannot figure out where. It's the same left to right and sounds like a rubber bushing squeek to me. Only started after I greased everything up a week ago but it's also been dry and dusty lately

Just hit it with a BFH until it stops squeeking.
Or check your sway bar links, might need a turn or two, and what condition are they and the bushings in.

I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number!

What specific conditions are making it squeek? Bumps, turning...etc? How frequent?

Only at 20kph? Nothing when slower or faster? Oh...but you hear it in a drive through...so that is going to be much slower. It still not clear if when suspension is flexing or just happening with wheels turning. So not sure where to direct you to look. For now...check every thing in the front. Brakes, suspension all of it.

I think it may be shock bushings. Just jacked everything up and checked no noise when spinning wheels but if I bounce suspension I get a slight squeek
