[DML] Re: FRONT END creeking noise

Hi Dan...

It's hard to say what exactly the problem is without looking at the
car itself, but I would start cheap and work your way up to the more
expensive parts such as the shocks or bushings.

Starting with cheap, I noticed that on my cars there would be a
squeeky noise when the rubber bushing that sits inside the shock tower
would rub up against the shock tower.  The bushing sits on top of the
spring and prevents the metal on metal contact between the spring and
shock tower.  When I installed new shocks and springs on one of my
DeLoreans, I put high impact grease on both sides of that bushing and
it eliminated that noise.

I hope this is helpful!
