Icon5 Hmmmmm.

I posted this under suspension 3 weeks ago and did not get any replies yet. Can someone here help? I have a 2000 Extended cab 4x4, 3.0 Ranger. I just got the truck and had to replace the sway bar to A-arm links. The left side link had the bolt head sheared off. The left shock had the top bolt mushroomed and almost sheared. After replacing links and shocks I have a very loud squeak when I turn the wheels or drive over even the smallest bump. I am not a mechanic so here I am. Any thoughts? I also get the noise if I push the front of the truck up and down by hand. Thanks.....Paul

New bushings may need lubricant, good place to start.
Get a good Grease Job, and lube all of the bushing, if using Ploy Bushings get some ploy grease.

Liquid Wrench silicone lubricant. Do all the brushings and the links themselves.
