Question Squeaking noise!!!!

I just started hearing a squeaking noise on the front driver side of my truck near the suspension or the Total Chaos UCA's!!! It only squeaks when it hits a bump or going up or down on the driveway. I have 5100's up front with OME springs and TC UCA's. Any suggestions?

you may need to spray a little pb blaster on the tc's uniball. thats probably where the squeak is coming from.

1 million dollars says its the a-arms.

Go get some graphite powder and douse the uni-balls.

Clean them WELL first.

Okay, thanks guys! I was kind of figuring it was the UCA's. I'll try it out when I get home tonight!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I responded to your PM. If the UCA's werent greased propperly when installed, you may have to take them off, and grease the bushing propperly. They may need to be pulled out of the UCA, then, rub grease all over them, and the sleave. Then, reinstall. They shouldnt squeak at all.

Anyone use this grease for their UCA bushings?

I'm going to re-grease my TC UCAs and am looking for a quality grease. My goal is to eliminate the annoying squeaking for good.
