156 Sportwagon creaky suspension

As the title says, it ( front suspension ) creaks and groans when working. I think I remember that you can lube the suspension to cure this.

But what must you lubricate, and with what??

Thanks all,

Depends, not sure about 156's but on 147's they reckon the bushes in the upper wishbones have a working life of about 50K

If your over that people have used silicon spray to help but only for a short time.

As GhostyDog says, it's prob new front upper wishbones. It's not an expensive job, and if you're a DIYer here's AlfaWorkshop's Alfa 156 upper wishbones replacement guide.
