    Im freaken irritated with this squeek!!!
    its on my drivers side, and I have lubed everything but still cant figure out what is causing it.
    ~ But I know its either my Toytec C/O's or
    ~ TC UCA's....
    I just dont know what to do anymore. Help and suggestions greatly appreciated!

    wat?
    what lubes did you use on the UCA's? my AP UCA's squeaked and it was because of the uniball. got the dry lube on there and not a peep now. when my UCA bushings need greased they will make a noise as well, but definately different than the uniball noise

    Most squeeks are cause from dirt in the springs. Have you blasted the coils with a presure washer?

    Yeah, I think Ive pin pointed the squeek. Its coming from my UCA bushings, I know that there greased up real good. But maybe a little much.... causing movement in between the arm and the bushing? causing the squeek. I think i may have to just wait it out....

    No bulging.. I actually took some grease out of that side about a week ago, because a couple were. And I also gave them a couple shot of M1 grease earlier. So I hope that will help.... Only time will tell:)

    thanks for all the quick reply's and help!
