Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

Replaced my front struts with bilsteins and the strut mounts too. I still have the squeak. So its either Sway bar bushings or maybe the A arm bushing? Do they need to be replaced? Or will some good grease take care of it.

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

Yeah, not a squeak as much as an "Eeeeh, ruhhh." or something like that.

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

I had the same problem after i got my 3" EMU lift, it was coming from my right upper control arm. I drilled a small hole in the rubber boot and sprayed a lubricant into the control arm, heated up the area with a propane torch ( so the lub would bleed into the area) and my squeak went away. it was driving me crazy for 3 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!
The hole was about 1/8" in size, I used Castle Thrust penetrating oil!

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

Are the a-arm bushings replaceable, or do you need to change the whole arm?

EDIT: You can get all the lower front control arm bushings (3) from rockauto the front and strut fork bushings are press-in the rear comes with/ in the mount

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

It's the bushing. You have to replace them. Do nit replace them with the original style. Replace them with the redesigned style. There is also a redesigned bracket.

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

So, my WK has just started making this squeaking noise in the front end. Can you guys confirm that lubing the upper A arm bushings does the trick? If so, I'll get 'er done this weekend. Thanks!

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

It's the front swaybar bushings. Not the a-arm bushings.

Not an expensive repair.
