[DML] Re: Squeeking Springs & Shocks

The front springs move alot in the lower perches. If you did not
position the rubber properly the spring could be moving and touching
the steel of the perch. In any case some silicone spray will help with
the squeaks. I also lubricate the front sway bar rubber bushings with
liquid silicone so they can move easily. Also make sure when you
installed the shocks you put the rubber bsuings in correctly and not
too loose or not too tight.
