Does anybody have any suggestions on how to stop a squeaking front shock. It's my drivers side front shock only. The shocks are fine as far as wear and ride, it's just this squeaking (very noticable in parking lots) thats about to drive me crazy!! Thanks for replies..
I am glad to see I am not alone. I couldn't tell if it was my steering or suspension, But its definitely my shocks. I even went underneath and lubed all the rubber bushings with Kroil, Hoping it would solve the annoying noise; But its still there. I only have 34,000 on my truck, So I am not ready to put new shocks on yet.
I have an 06 F150 Supercrew... Changed the shocks at around 72k (Bilstiens) and I have the squeak you described. Its driving me crazy. Its NOT THE SHOCKS. If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them.
Yeah, I really notice mine when I am pulling out of the garage. When I put it in gear and step on the gas; Just before the truck moves it gives that "bathtub" squeak. That little bit of initial torque must effect the suspension somewhere. I know its not in the steering. It also does it when you have an extreme rise and drop in the road. I lubed every joint I could find, And still hear it.
...that was what someone suggested to me once some years back when i was trying to figure out what to do about a similar mysterious creak coming from the front of the '93 F-150 I had at the time. never did figure it out before finally selling the truck. hopefully you have better luck than i did.
