Squeaky Ride

Post by Jmzink17 » Fri May 20, 2016 1:02 pm

Okay ladies and gentlemen. I replaced the shocks and the springs on my 02 Firehawk and there is still a lot of squeak in the ride when pulling out of my incline driveway and and going over speed bumps etc.
Any ideas and suggestions are more than welcome. Also would you do Fast LSXR 102 mm intake or headers first.

Thank you

Sway bar bushings more then likely is my guess. Cheap way to find out, remove sway bar bushings , lube them with grease , and reinstall. If the squeezing goes away then you'll know its the bushings
someday, i'll have another firehawk...

Could also be lower control arm bushings. If yours have fittings, grease 'em.
