    try taking it to the carwash and pressure wash anything that you sprayed with the wd40 then get some silicone grease and try that.

    Will do thank you for chiming in. Is there spray I can buy to substitute putting grease on my finger and spreading it around?

    Ya, WD-40 is not a good lubricant. Use a grease.

    White, I know what you're talking about. No need to send a pic. I went to walmart to buy cans of silicone spray that day so I can spray all the suspension, but they were out so I used wd.

    On a side note, solving spray is amazing to use on the black plastic finish on our truck. ie: bed, bumper, trim.
    Thats another reason I love thatstuff

    That sounds like the rubber at the top and bottom of the coils.

    Get yourself a mechanics stethoscope:

    You can pin point the noise.
    It's really hard to tell just by a video.

    Also turning you wheel while at a complete standstill? Not a good idea. Your rack-n-pinion won't be happy!

    Between the coil and the seat, unless you took it out, it's there.

    That is exactly the same noise my wifes honda accord was making. I started replacing everything I could that I thought could be causing the sound. The last thing I replaced with the LOWER BALL JOINT and it solved the problem.

    CHECK YOUR BALL JOINTS! ONE OR BOTH ARE SHOT!

    It's most likely your lower.
