    Default Lubing Suburban Rear Door Hinges

    For as long as I've had my truck the rear doors make ungodly squealing noises when I open and close them. I've lubed anything I can see, but the noise seems to come from inside the doors. Any suggestions?

    Thank goodness I am not alone. I am ashamed to even open the doors when someone is around. They sound like they are a 100 years old. I did get some of the noise to go away by using white lithium grease spraying it onto the hinges and under the rubber boot that is around the hinge. I have to do this about once a month to kieep it from sounding like fingernails on a chalk board.

    White lithium grease has always worked for me... My '95 Tahoe was notorious for that...

    other stuff that works great for it is spray red grease can get it at most auto parts and if not find a marie shop they should have it... used to used it on my jeeps to lube the heim joints when they started to squeek, lasted and worked better then white it does not wash away when it gets wet... also on door latch assemblies it works wonders on... even the old 80's tailgat latches.. thought I had to replace.. sprayed clean with brakeclean then lubed up and they worked again... that sold me right there
