[DML] Re: Coil spring question

The springs in the front suspension on a Delorean can move around in
the seats (perches) causing squeaks and clicks. Make sure the rubber
isolators are in good condition and you can spray silicone lubricant
on it. It is mostly the bottom perches that the spring moves in. Just
inspect everything thourghly to be sure no parts are cracked or worn.
Also lubricate the sway bar bushings. For them I like to take them
apart and use silicone grease. Go sparingly, a little bit goes a long
way. You can spray the control arm bushings too, just make sure they
are not loose. Lubricate the ball joints and the tie rod ends with a
heavy bodied lithium grease too. A dry joint will make all kinds of
clicks and noises. Check that the shocks are tight and the bushings
are not deformed.
