The war on the squeaking suspension

I developed the usual upper wishbone squeak but knew from when i had the 156 a quick squirt of silicone spray would keep it away for a short while. Well i could not find any silicone spray but i did have some motorcycle chain lube so thought its worth a go and it sticks like s**t to a blanket and wont be washed away to easily.

Well it seems to work, first spray lasted just over a week, same for second spray, third spray lasted about 3 weeks and the last one was about 5 weeks ago and its still ok. So i`m thinking its building up over time and seems to be working very well and from what i remember PTFE is an excellent lubricant.

Chain lube i use is Muc-Off Dry PTFE Chain Lube.
