Help Creaking torsion bars!

The front end of my 75 TS seems really creaky at the front. Very noticeable if in traffic or travelling at low speeds.

Has anyone else experienced this. I've been told to drill and plug the torsion bars with a grease nipple and pack full of grease due to the bushes drying out!

Any (cheap) ideas!?

Re: Creaking torsion bars!

Can you make it creak by pressing down on the wing? If so, I have the same problem (again). Last time it was the lower ball joint that had dried out and needed replacing. this time I think it's the upper. Have a look at the rubber round the middle of the ball joint (you'll probably only be able to see the lower one). If it's cracked or perished, there's a good chance you've found the culprit.
