Squeaky front end!?

Oh man, my car sounds like an old couch going over bumps right now. Any ideas on what the cause might be?

I hate to say it, but it sounds just like that stupid Dodge SX 2.0 when the bushing went.

Maybe, I will have to see if I can figure out where the sound is coming from. But squeaky old 1970's couch is exactly what it sounds like

lol, I repped you and you went from 4 to 10

I think just over 25K on the car now, I thought it was the cold until I noticed it recently on a warmer day.

Generally when diagnosing a problem, I look at what has been done by anyone other than Honda first...

What mods do you have?

Pretty much everything Well, still have stock shocks

Both ET and JDMish are pretty familiar with my car, they have done a large chunk of the work on it.

Jon what did the bushings look like on the front sway bar you installed poly or rubber?

They might need a bit of greasing. Only other thing I can see is the front shocks maybe starting to leak and making that noise?

Not sure, it sounds like it might be the springs. I wonder if they have dirt in the seat?

1743 lol

Maybe clean out that area with a pressure washer and the wheel off?

Compressed air would probably also help before you get anything wet to get that dirt off.

Yeah I took it into a hand wash bay yesterday and sprayed out of the front suspension, it didn't really have any affect. Still squeaky, I might pull the wheel this evening and see if anything looks out of place.

Yeah Rep points have hit a whole new low
