What do you do when they get squeaky? Can they be lubed, or is it one of those cases where you might as well just replace the suckers?

You could probably try spraying white grease or a graphite lubricant in there and see if that helps. Inspect the bushings for cracking while you are there. What bushings are you talking about?

You know... the bushings!

Who the heck knows. Front, rear lowers, rear upppers, too many to list.

:lol:

I started getting a horrible squeak out of one of my body-side UCA bushings after replacing the axle-side ones. Shot a bunch of spray white lithium grease in the gaps between the bushings and mounts and they shut right up and stayed that way.

MFE, isn't that the same strategy you used on your clutch throwout bearing?

maybe you should just dip the car in lithium grease once a month :D

With spray white lithium grease, duct tape, and self-adhesive velcro squares, I can rule the world.

Is spray white lithium grease available at your typical Pep Boys or AutoZone type store, or is it a specialty item? I don't remember seeing it before, but of course I wasn't specifically looking for it.
