My 2010 Rzr s has had a annoying squeek/creak from the rear since new. I have allready taken apart and lubed the upper and lower spindle pivots, inner arm pivots and sway bar pivots. I can put my hand on both springs at the upper adjusters and can feel it the worst. Is there supposed to be a insulator in between the spring and adjuster? Anybody else had this problem?

I took my swaybar off it's not the swaybar. The springs squeek all the time you can spray them with wd40 but it only last for a few min and then you have a dirty mess.

Forum member "Jack" just put the new derlin bushings on his 2010 S and applied a dry lube to them and his is perfectly quiet now. UTV Inc sells the bushings if it bothers you that much.

Overtight shock bolts were the cause of my squeak. I loosened, used a good spray lube (NOT WD!!!! IT IS NOT A LUBE!) and resnugged without the severe torque and voila!

Yeah, a dry lube like a silicone spray or graphite is the best.

Going to get the springs loose tonight and install Teflon tape on the upper spring collar. I think its creaking there. I'll let y'all know.

Mine has th very same squeak. Thought it was the sway bar. Doesn't bother me too much but if there's an easy fix, I'm in!!

No luck using the Teflon tape. I am convinced its related to the springs because thats where I can physically feel it with my hands. It's a loud metallic creak noise more so than a squeek. My fronts have a dual spring setup with plastic spacers in between. Are other rzr s set up this way? I wonder if that setup would cure the rear noise.

I just installed the delrin bushing kit from utvcrap and it cured most of the noise i had in the suspension, but the rear springs are still making some noise. Does anyone have the link to rzr jeffs write up on the fix for this?
