Oh, and the Cue de Graz? My suspension still squeaks, even with the leaf spring hanger bolts torqued down to 75 ft-lbs and the new bushings. It is maddening.

poly bushing are known to squeak, Energy Suspension sells a lube for the bushings (stinks like hell!!), when I had the poly bushings in my Upper control arms in my former 87 the only thing that worked (did not have the ES lube) was to constantly soak them with lubricant.

I bought a tube of lithium grease and coated everything. That shit is everywhere. I don't know how anything is squeaking. It must be coming from somewhere else.

you guys ever seen the whiteline bushings that are like a golf ball surface to hold grease? kinda genius. i also wonder if you can do the teflon tape trick with these kinda bushings like you can on a sway bar.
