Squeaky suspension?!?!

This is bugging me. My suspension squeaks!! I think it's mostly the front. Whenever I go over some bumps it does it. Does anybody have an idea of what it could be?

I know my suspension used to make an "eeking" noise when i went over a bump (more so when it was cold out), but if its a short high pitched sqeak, it could be your front sway bar bushings.

There is a service bulletin out on the problem. I had mine fixed under warrenty. You can go to wjjeeps.com and check it out. I don't remember the bulletin number, sorry.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

bushings would be the first culprit i'd think

also, when was the last time you greased?

Me personally, never... I've only had the Jeep for a couple months. The only thing i've greased are the new bushings on my Addco rear anti-sway bar.

Try this web site out. It's the actual TSB posted on WJJeeps.com

http://www.wjjeeps.com/tsb_list.htm#0200204a

The front suspension on my 2004 JGC is doing the same thing. The Jeep Service Manager knew exactly what I was describing over the phone and as a result, I have an appointment to take it in on Monday morning.

Good luck on getting the problem fixed and enjoy the Jeep.

Thanks! I was looking in the wrong spot. I also saw a bulletin for "wind like sound at top rear corner of front door" which is bugging me too. While I'm at the shop, I need to get a key programmed, I only have one so I can't do it myself. What's the stealership charge to do this?

I have the same problem....

Especially in cold weather. I cannot access the TSB link you gave. Is the site down?

Can you briefly describe what it said?

Many thanks
