Suspension Squeak

Hi all,

Has anyone used these:

My front suspension has gotten considerably more squeaky over the last few weeks, worse in the cold dry weather we have been having recently.

I'm presuming it is the usual problem of the bushes deteriorating - would the above link be appropriate as a replacement?

If not, would anyone be able to suggest a better setup?

Don't do it. They might last 3,000 miles if you are really lucky. Delphi, Lemforder, TRW or Birth are the recommended replacements.

Squeak is normally top wishbone (the aluminium ones in the middle of the picture) and that is a simple(ish) replacement.

Thousands of posts on here about cheap replacements and some good "how tos"

I'd recommend TRW upper arms from Alfaworkshop. Bushes don't need greasing and are OE quality. Not too expensive either....
