For about a week now I've noticed that the rear suspension bushes have started creaking a bit. Wondering if there is anything I can spray on them to keep them quiet? The bushes themselves are still in excellent condition so I don't want to replace them...Just quieten them down.

I have the same issue with my upper contol arm bushes, drives me nuts :evil:
I tried silicone spray and it didnt really do the job so sooner or later they are coming out for another greasing...PITA!

These are Nolothane fitted to a camber kit. Funny thing is the old kit (also Nolothane) did it also.
When I fitted them, I used the genuine grease supplied (and plenty of it), still it squeeks. Well its more of a groan.

Im considering sending them back and trying some Superpro units.

I have SuperPro bushes all through my suspension, and no noises.
Nolathane don't have knurling like SuperPro.....this holds the special grease while you push the sleeves through.
I heard that Nolathane got bought out by Red Ranger.....???

Checked in the shed before and I've got a can of silicone spray so I'll get under the wagon tomorrow and give the bushes a good clean then spray the silicone spray on them and hopefully that'll keep them quiet for a while. Hate having that creaking noise every time I go over a slight bump in the road.
