    Stupid frickin squeaking suspension!!!

    I have been fighting with my rear passenger suspension for the last couple days. There is a squeek in ther somewhere. I've put so much sylicone spray on there it was puddling in spots.

    I thought i had it down to the torque arm. So i unbolted the front of it and drenched it in sylicone. Put it back together, squeaks worse. Every pothole makes it squeak, every bump or rut.

    My next course of action is to take every endlink off and put white sylincone grease on everything.


    Any opinons?

    Do you have Polyurethane Bushings in the control arms???? If you live in a wet weather environment you may just have to either replace the bushings if they are still stock or lube em up........

    Stock bushings, though I've been thinking about Poly lately.


    Ugh, well this is a long weekend, maybe I'll just by some lube and go to town on the rearend.

    WD-40 will eat the rubber. Or so I've heard, so I'd rather not.


    Looks like this weekend I'll be lubing em up as a temporary solution then swap out the bushings for poly.

    I've had my rear sway bar bushings greased 6 times in 3yrs and that cured my rear squeaking problem every time, 02 SS

    Welp, looks like Ernesto cured my problem. With all the rain Jersey has been getting this and last week, she stopped squeeking.


    We'll see if it comes back once it dries out a bit though.
