I just replaced the shocks and bushes in my XE Monty. However, The bloody thing still squeaks from the front left.

Suggestions?

This could be as simple as the top nut on the shock needing to be tightened up to hold the shock rubbers a little firmer. Any play here can cause an annoying squeek.

I'll be the upper arms. Quite common. They either need greasing or the bushes need replacing.

Upper control arm bushes. Put XF arms in, they were re-designed.
