rear shock squeak

I have a 2009 RZR S with a bad squeak in rear. I finally isolated it to the top rear shock mount. I removed the bolt, cleaned it and applied light grease. I tightened the bolt and nut back to 37 ft lbs with a torque wrench and it still squeaks. When I loosen the nut about 1/2 turn the squeak stops. Anyone else have this issue? I am considering adding a second nut as a jam nut and leave it looser than the 37 ft lbs. I also tried a couple of different types of lubrication for the shock mount but it still squeaks if I torque it to the recommended setting.

Dennis

I would not leave the nut loose. Is it possible noise is between the bushing and the shock? You greased between the bolt and bushing but how about bushing and shock. The bushing can be removed. It's a little difficult but can be done.

It isn't the bolt that's squeaking. Take 'em apart and clean them up and lube them good. Mine were a mess!

Re: rear shock squeak

Dennis, the torque specs in all my books say all the shock bolts torque to 27-33 ft.lbs. 37 will bind them. Also, if the squeak doesn't go away, take a look at the upper bearing carrier bolt/bushing (outer end of the rear upper a-arm). That rascal will squeak up a storm.

Re: rear shock squeak

Ok the book calls that bolt a pinch bolt. The one attached to the cv housing next to the wheel. Now call me crazy but is that bolt suppose to be turned lefty loosy to remove and slide out. Because I just tried mine and use crazy force and all of a sudden I heard a snap noise like I just hurt the bolt. Does anyone know how to get that damn bolt off so I can grease it. Thought the noise was the shocks like everyone else and I was clearly mistaken. Damnit.
