    Default Squeaking, maybe from suspension?

    Driving through base housing with the windows down I can hear this squeaking noise. Pretty sure it's coming from the front and it seems to follow the bumps of the tread and road bumps. It's not audible above 20MPH because the tires and exhaust drown it out. I suspect it is the suspension. What should I look at or lube or what not to see if it'll fix it? Thanks.

    When I lube mine I hit anything with a grease fitting and any of the bushings that don't I use a dry film lubricant (seems to last longer than regular spray lube) and try to hose them down getting in all the nooks and crannies. Hope this helps........oh and it doesn't last forever, I do it whenever it starts squeking and creaking again.

    Cool squeaking maybe from suspension

    On my 05 lifted Silverado I found my bushings on my edelbrock front dual shocks were squecking. Loosened the mounting bolts and sprayed with silicone grease, moved the bolts around and sprayed again. This stop squeak for a few months but it came back. Turned up the radio

    Thanks. I'll have to take it to the auto hobby shop and get it up on the lift and take a good look around the front suspension. The only problem is when to do this lol. I'm rarely up during the day since I'm on night shifts. I'll see what I can work out though. Thanks for the input guys. Hope it works.
