[DML] Re: Front end creaking & other odd noises...



My squeak sounds surfaced suddenly and sounded exactly as you both 
describe.  Driving to work in the morning, all was silent.  Driving 
at lunch time was horrible.  Even looking at the front end made it 
squeak.

Some lithium grease sprayed on anything that looked like a joint in 
and around the front end removed it almost immediately. That was a 
year and 10,000 miles ago and the sound hasn't returned.
