Ever since I bought this thing going over speed bumps or similar it's had noise.
Always figured this was from Hotchkis rear arms, now I know it is...
They are too "loose" imho as well. They need to be removed and lubed up!

Don't they have a zerk fitting on them so you can grease it?

Good catch. I make certain to hit all the zerks at least every 5 years when it's up in the air for something else. I remember it could take a while on the Hotchkis considering the fittings were recessed, but by spending what seemed too much time I got lucky with no squeaks or failures in 15 years I had them.
