Hi all,

Well my happy as a kid in a candy store just got a little unhappier.

I have one to four new squeaking noises under my car now that I have semi-completed my recent mods.

I had the PST SuperFront End kit installed with Hotchkis springs in the front & Bilsten shocks. The car dropped 1 1/4" up front. I am doing the rearend myself in a couple of weeks, but until then what do I do about the squeaks & will upgrading the rear help it?

I was cruSSin the hood last night at like 10-15mph with the windows down & all I could hear was this squeaking & everyone walking on the street would turn & look & I'm like this sounds terrible


Lookin for advice. Does this mean I have to replace the body mounts? I'm just guessing


Thanks,
Stretch

If you changed bushings in the front and now you have more squeaks, then doing work on the rear will probably not help.
I suspect your new bushings are the culprit.
Try spraying them with a lubricant, one at a time, this way you may find it's just one or two bushings that need lubed.
Could be the spring isolators too, not so easy to spray though.

Thanks FMJSS,

I took the SS back to the guy who installed my front end items. He test drove it & greased the left upper control arm bushing & it went away. :D

I am now as happy as a kid in a candy store again :cool:
