I'm wondering whats the right way to grease the bushings in the front end. When going over speed bumps slowly i hear a sqeeking from the front passenger corner. also when parked if i get out and push down on that corner i can get it to squeek. I've searched and found people recomending to greese these bushings but not really sure where they are and what the procecdure is. Thanks

thanks, exactly what i needed. Well now that i think about it, would this be considered warranty work?

When i had squeeking noise it was my lower control arm bushings. I sprayed some White lithium grease and it goes away. Comes back every oil change though...heh. Changed them out for new ones, problem solved. Good Luck.

I would think it would be covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

no grease will not last long at all. My friend who owns a garage and we used powder grahite laste year and i have not had a squeak since. You could also try grahite paste and rub it on with a brush either way will work and not flush out when done right
