Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

Anyone know what we should torque the bolts to after reassembly?

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

I clicked on this thread because I wanted to see what a squeak looked like. Hence the name "Rear end squeak with pictures".

I'm disappointed

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

Thanks for the tip, that squeak was driving me crazy. Instead of loosing or removing the bolts, I shot some WD40 in those areas and no more squeak. I now can enjoy coasting along again.

Grease all the bolts, bushings, metel spacers & where it touches the a-arm ends.
Mine has been squeaking very badly for a while now. Just got it over to my shop to take a look at it. I thought it was the rear sway bar - or more like I hoped it was, since it has a grease fitting - but once I got it on the lift and in the air, it is definitely the same spots squeaking as shown in the pictures.

I like your idea! I might have to give that a shot before our yearly Arkansas trip in September.

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

Squeak just does not bother me. I guess it should, it does not. Too busy enjoying myself, with too big a smile to hear the squeak. :-)

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

You must pull the sleaves out and pack them.
Unless you like squeeks and guick bushing wear.
Also- don't overtighten the shock bolts. Let them float a little

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

I took ALL the bushings , sleeves and bolts apart both front and rear and upper and lower a arms and greased with marine wheel bearing grease. Don't forget to do the shocks the bushings in them were dry as a bone just like the a arms. If you neglect the noise the bushings will wear out, which could be costly or even dangerous. I will make this a seasonal maintence from here on...

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

I am not ignoring the squeak. I am waiting on the needed maintenance because I am without a good torque wrench. Once that is found and purchased, I will be removing quite a bit of parts and lubing away.

Re: Rear end squeak with pictures.

Shaky, you can get a decent click type torque wrench that will serve the purpose at Harbor Freight or Northern Tool. Everyone has been asking for torque specs, they are listed below. Note: Shock bolt torque is important, do not over-tighten. Spec is 27-33 ft.lbs.

1. Install lower A-arm assembly onto vehicle frame. Torque
new fasteners to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
2. Attach lower A-arm to bearing carrier. Torque new fastener
to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm).
3. Route brake line on top of the lower A-arm and between
lower shock mounting tabs.
4. Reinstall the lower portion of the shock to the lower A-arm.
Torque shock fastener to 27-33 ft. lbs. (37-45 Nm).
5. Install upper A-arm assembly onto vehicle frame. Torque
new fastener to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
6. Attach upper A-arm to bearing carrier. Torque new fastener
to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

I don't replace the fasteners every time I take it apart. If there are issues with the fastener or nut then I replace them. If you're worried about the nut backing off, use a drop of BLUE Loctite (NOT RED).

Dune Shooting is indeed a blood sport, at least in my case!

You can say 'STOP' or 'ALTO' or use any other word you think will work, but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language.

I am a distributor for Green Grease. Waterproof, synthetic, high-temp stuff. It's the best Ive ever seen (which is why Im now a distributor...) Anyway, its $8.95/14 oz tube, and fits in your grease gun. I usually ship it out on the same day you order, so you'll have it pretty quickly.

I have two Ebay sales going for it right now. Single tubes, as well as 10-tube cases. Check my feedback, 100%, and you get the security of PayPal.

Single tubes:
14oz Single Waterproof Green Grease! High Perf, Synthetic, High Temp Grease | eBay

Cases:
Case of 10, 14oz Waterproof Green Grease! High Perf, Synthetic, High Temp | eBay
