Re: [DML] Re: squeeking noise

That was a great idea - in fact I even pulled the wheels off, adjusted the  
parking brakes, and while I was in there I pulled out the rear brake pad pins,  
cleaned them, and greased them.  Then I took it for a drive - unfortunately  
that wasn't the problem because there is still something making a little  
The noise I hear is very similar to rubbing glass with a wet towel, or the  
sound the fuel pump makes when it is cavitating (definitely not the  problem).  
It is not rhythmic and doesn't seem to be influenced by  suspension travel.  
It seems to be only doing this when the car is good and  hot.  I didn't notice 
it at all during warm up.  It only squeeks when  the car is moving, and it is 
not related to the brakes i.e. it doesn't go away  or start when applying the 
brakes.  It is not dependent on turning the car  a certain direction, and I 
can only hear it at low speeds with my foot off  the gas. I tried pulling the 
parking brake while I was rolling and that was  a much higher-pitched squeek.  
After I got home, I jacked the car up and  turned the wheels by hand - no 
noises other than the typical pads rubbing  the rotors.  So, I guess I am 
convinced it has to be in the suspension but  I don't know where.  Maybe I will try 
spraying all of the bushings with  silicone spray and see that has any effect.  
I was also thinking it might  be a cooling hose or fuel line rubbing on the 
frame or something.
Any other ideas?
