mine did the same thing, just rocking the rzr side to side would make is squeak like crazy. i tried to greasing the swaybar and all the fittings. didn't help. then i pulled the shocks off, took apart the bushings and cleaned and put a thin layer of grease all over them. fixed it, haven't had a problem since, guess i'll make it a yearly thing. hope this helps, worked great for me, also check the swaybar mount bolts, mine were loose, along with alot of other stuff on my rzr.

X2. I used a thin coat of good marine grease. Works great.

Put some grease fittings in your rear spindles. Look thru my posts because I put pictures of how to do this in the past.

OH YEAH!

Squeaks we developed. I discovered pretty much the same thing with the steering being the biggest culprit. The non greasable tie rod ends were making a lot of noise. Everything came down for some grease and synthetic oil on the tierod ends.

Same here! After about 400 miles I had this horrible click in the right rear everytime I turned left. Turned out that the swaybar mount bolts were completely loose. Checked EVERY nut and bolt I could find after that and nothing else was loose. Also, I had a chirp that was driving me crazy and it turned out to just be from the normal movement where the seat belt connects to the roll bar...a little silicone spray cleared it right up. Other than that, its pretty quiet - lucky I guess since I've read about a lot of folks with phantom noises and vibrations they can never find.

Someones suggestion, in another thread, was to loosen the shock bolts.....so I tried it and no more squeaks. I have kept an eye on the shock bolts, just to make sure they didnt loosen and they havent.

I got rid of the double metal bushings in the front shocks. Replaced them with a set of Delrin bushings less one of the metal inserts. This not only fixed some of the squeaks but some of the popping and clunking from the front end. :)

Had the squeaks in the rear so I greased the outside of the plastic bushings in the A-Arms and it stopped.

Where did you find Delrin bushings for your shocks. I have them in all the A-arms and love them. Didin't find them for the shocks.
