Squeaky suspension - still!

1. Tried silicone spray around the front bushes - seemed to work for 2 days then squeak came back.
2. Cleaned the leaky gearbox with degreaser then hosed off with water - appears that the hosing worked for a couple of days, the squeak is now back!

Can anyone suggest what I should be using to lubricate the bushes to try to get rid of the darned noise for good? Also, how to apply? (Ie, do I just put back on the ramp and spray liberally on all suspension bushes literally?

Sounds like a knackered lower arm bushing - need to replace em.

My 147 (60K kms) had so many rattles/squeaks in the front suspension it was driving me crazy!
Replaced both upper control arms and new Bilstein B6's and lubricated everything and it's better than new.

Re: Squeaky suspension - still!

Likewise, had really bad squeaking from the front ... replaced lower wishbones, all quiet - very slight noise from the rear - probably Polyflex bushes ... can live with it ...

The lowers are about 30 each - about 2 hours labour ...
