Finally found source of pesky/annoying squeaking suspension

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.

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, , 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds with CV MMC, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear). Finally, wait for it... LT-4 knock module!
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!
