Please help diagnose aftermarket suspension noises in 2012 Mustang
hey guys, so you can see in my sig, all of the suspension mods that i have. all bushings are urethane and not hiem or delrin, just fyi.
ok, lets say that i am very slowly going over some steep speed bumps...i get a noise that very much sounds like bushing noise. it's not sqeek, it's more like that sound when rubber is being stretched/rubbing against something. all my urethane bushings have been heavily greased with prothane bushing grease, so unless i missed a spot where a bushing is touching some metal, i can't figure that that is where the noise is coming from. i have also checked that everything is tight as well.
now, here is what i did notice...it wasn't until i installed my upper non-adjustable control arms, that i heard this noise. the stock bushing on the axle is still in place. maybe i didn't grease the chassis end of that UCA bushing well enough? or maybe the stock axle bushing is binding and causing this noise? idk.
here is one thing that i did notice though and it must be do to being under load....i do not get this noise when i go over bumps, if i am accelerating. even if the acceleration is minor, i don't get the noise. only off throttle or if i'm braking while going over bumps.
any ideas and input is appreciated guys. thanks.
