View Full Version : squeaky bed syndrome

10-21-2006, 07:41 PM
my suspension is sounding like an old bed thats been hammered on one too many times. Its begun to piss me off and the first thing i thought was obviously springs are bad, but their practically brand new with maybe 5k miles on them. Any other suggestions on the problem or what?

I don't think springs usually squeak... there's not much that they should be rubbing against...

I would bet it's the struts. Mine squeaked like crazy for two months before i replaced them.

if the struts get loose they will squeak, bushings gone bad will cause them to get loose

good deal, i know i needed to replace the tension rod bushings soon, and i was praying that it wasn't the struts cuz they got put on the same time i did with the springs. guess, i gotta drop the car off to the shop soon.

The ass of my celica is the same way. Sway Bar bushing is causing it to squeek fiercly.
