    Question making a noise?????????

    Just installed bolt-in subframe conn., LCA's and panhard rod. Install was easy, car was level and on suspension weight. several sqeaks coming from rear. Used grease that came with parts and 2 pumps in the zirks, tightened bolts to torque specs. car makes noise when pulling into driveway or going over small bumps. Also it did not make this noise before I put these parts on. Thanks for advise.

    I used to have those squeaks, i did all my suspension mods and it went away. I think it was the rear shocks that were squeaking but i will never know for sure

    if anything, you stiffining the suspension has made other problems more evident.

    You probably have poly bushings in the panhard bar and the LCA's. They need regular greasing to reduce the squeaks.

    When you run out the provided lube I use anti-seize on the bushings.

    That actually lasts longer as it repels water/elements better.
