    About a year ago the RAB were replaced. Since then I have noticed a squeaking coming from the front end of the vehicle that has worsened as of recently. It sounds like it is coming from the RAB. The front end makes this really aggravating squeaking sound whenever I hit any kind of bump at slow speeds. Its seems to squeak more if the front wheels are turned to either side. Anyone know what this might be and how to fix it?

    Thanks

    Spray some WD40 on the bushings to see if the noise lessons... Cheap polyurathane bushings are very hard and known to cause this type of noise.

    DeRocha, I've tried both WD40 and bearing grease. Neither seemed to really help. Thanks for the reply.

    I would spray some WD40 on the sway bar bushings, axle pivot, and body mounts to see if it lessons and was only masked as a RAB noise.
