Suspension squeek was created by mlines
I have an annoying squeek, like a bird twittering. It occurs on a flat road ie when the suspension is doing nothing. Large flexes and bumps do not have an issue. So it's the spring moving against the rubber top seat or a bush squeeking on its bolt. I should be able to chase it down with WD40, but is there a better squeak ointment?

Duck oil is good can’t see why people bang on about wd40 to be honest it’s a water dispersant great for that

I am not suggesting WD40 as the solution, just the detection method ?

Silicone lubricant spray is good for that sort of thing. Halfrauds sell it. :)

It's been fettled just a tad.

+1 for the silicone lubricant especially if you have Polly bush fitted, tends not to attack the bush. May need to spray each bush in turn and flex the suspension to work it in if you want to locate the culprit, or spray them all and find some rough ground to give it all a good flex.
