I have been getting a high pitch squeek as I hit bumps with my front end. Any ideas where to look first?

I keep it greased well.

Could it be the shocks? I figure I'll start with a can of WD40 and each day I'll wet a moving joint or bushing. Process of elimination.

Rubber bushings in the sway bar? Try shooting some silcone in 'em.


I had a Grand Cherokee that drove me nuts until the bushing part number changed (and the color of the rubber.... new formulation?).


BTW, I am originally from up the Susquehanna a ways from you. Jersey Shore (between Lock Haven and Williamsport).

dmaxalliTech also said the top shock bushings have been causing squeek complaints.

George,

Isn't it strange they call Jersey Shore that, in Pa?
There's also a town called "84" after 84 lumber.
We have a biennial get together in Indiana Pennsylvania.
Not to mention Bird in Hand, Intercourse and Gap, Pa.

I worked with a fellow from Pine Grove.

Hoot, its funny, I just found the tsb today for the squek, its the lower bushing on the top of the shock.. funny huh. Any rate, just get some bilsteins and problem will go away and ride will improve
Some coincidence. The squeekin just started last week.

First Diesel... thanks. I'll use a silicone spray instead.
