The normal squeaky culprits are the rear shock rubbers and leaf shackle rubbers.
I’ve found that lubricant is not that efficient without removing the moister first.
I am using Q20 to remove moister, apply and drive around the block over speed humps etc.
Then I am using Loctite multi spray, drive around the block and all squeaks gone.
It last until the next high pressure chassis cleaning. :thumbup:

Just take out the rubber bushes and pack with grease. Problem solved for years and years!

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

I ou toppie by vaal spring works het my vertel dis die slegste ding wat jy kan doen met n bladveer... Die grease versamel sand en dit maak grinding paste. Maak vir my nogal sin...
Ek dink dis hoekom OME daai geel plastiek spacertjies gebruik op hulle leafs... Nogi rerig veel na ander bladvere gekyk nie...
