Re: Squeaks In The Suspension Or Joints?
Written by Ian on 9/30/2012 at 12:00 am

I have had a squeak in the rear suspension that realy annoyed me too. I found that the springs were rubbing on the shock bodies, so dismantled the shock and put large electrical shrink tube over the shock body and heated it to shrink it on. I also fitted new bushes to the top and bottom of the shocks as the holes in them were oval rather than round. My "fix" has stopped the squeak and I have had no further strange noises from the suspension.

Hope this is of some help.
