    Default Still a Squeek after Dog Bones replacment?

    Can anyone give me an idea where to look for squeak in the drivers side rear.( all exhaust donuts are new and exhaust hangers are tight)

    by using the search I was certain it was the dog bones ( they need replacing anyway after 60K)

    TIA

    In most case the squeak comes from the dogbones. I added a bit of grease into the dogbones before I installed new ones, especially the cheapo ones have little grease. Easy to add, just remove the dust boots.

    Shock mounts tight?
    I know it is difficult to find the exact location. Try to push the rear down and listen if you hear any noise.

    shogun...I pushed down on rear fender and I get the squeak so am going for the shock mounts ...heck it has been 13 years since I did the sachs kit and M-Tech sways.
    I will report Back.... also I used Lemforder dog bones like i did before.

    FYI...Still have the Ported manifold for FREE i anyone wants it...IMHO you need a ported head and headers to really make use of it or you could hang i t in your garage!
