Re: creaky front suspension
It feels so good not to be the only one ..., doesn't it?!
Yeap, same thing ... noises, terrible handling ... the best thing is to replace both wishbones (up and down), the rubber boots and bearings are the major responsibles for this, and unfortunately you can't buy them separately, you must get the full wishbone ...
I started having these problems miles and miles ago. I first replaced the rubbers with powerflex: got rid of some noises but not the terrible handling. Then, I replaced the lower wishbones because of the bearing (that connects the upper "triangle" to the suspension arm). The bad handling continued ... and now an unbearable squeaking that seems to come from the upper wishbone - upper bearing for sure ... Just bought the upper wishbones, I'll get back to you as soon as I replace them.
