hey again people, been busy so havent been on here of late lol
iv just got my car back from a nasty crash.
$5000 dammage to my car, but it wasnt a write of as it was over insured for $8000+
anyho. Ive now got a squeeking/creeking noise comming from the front suspension when breaking. When breaking from 60==>20kmh it doenst make this noise only when im slowing the final 20kmh. And then again when i let of the break at slow speeds. The crash repares reccon that its just dry nolithane bushes (installed last september, with a camber and caster kit), but it wasnt there b4 the crash.
My chances of getting it fixed under insurence isnt looking good, so im wondering if anyone had this noise, and what they did to help it
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
I had that problem where when I hit the gas at low speeds to jerk the car or slowing right down or stopping the car completely and let go of the brake pedal the suspension would squeek.
I replaced the lower suspension arm bushes that mount the arm to the body and this fixed the problem. My ball joint on the squeeky side was also stuffed and I haven't replaced it yet so it could also be the problem however it's most likely the bushes(or lack of) that was making the noise on mine.
