My 1995 L has started to squeek when I get out and the weight is lifted off suspension.

Rear Links?

Lub up the bushings?


Ideas?

Thanks

I have the exact same problem, its like a creaking sound almost, mines is only from the front though. I asked about this a few months ago on MW and was told maybe it was too many cheeseburgers LOL......didnt quite get an answer but sometime next week Im planning on checkin it out and seeing whats goin on, I know theres a few things that need fixing

I bet the sound is coming from the rear rotors (from the parking brake shoes specifically). Mine does that sometimes.

Yeah, I read the threads on both the rotors, and the cheeseburgers. I dont have the burger problem, but it would be the e-brake.

I will try it on a hill and see, then I think I will lube up the joints with some spray.

What kind of spray you think?

Graphite?

Anyone know a good brand?

WD-40 is probably good to pin down a squeak if it's a joint or bushing. Try setting the handbrake and pushing up and down on the rear bumper at each corner. Do it again with the handbrake disengaged. If the sound doesn't change, it's probably not handbrake related. Possibly a little chassis creak? Nothing lasts forever.

there is a TSB on this matter. if i remember the TSB correctly, the lateral links are to blame. they have new lateral links that solves this issue.

i will post the TSB once i get back to my home computer.
