Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension

I just installed my tein ss on my 93 prelude. But I noticed the passenger side front wheel area is making a squeeking noise (mainly when i reverse) similar to that of the brake indicator. Checked my brakes, they are nice a meaty.

Any idea what could be wrong? This only happened after installing the coilovers.

Could be the bushing at the top of the shock.

Re: Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension

Thank you guys. I will spray it with silicone or something, and if that helped, I'll apply paste! Update when it's done.

Re: Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension

If it's just been a short time, let it go for awhile -- they may settle and wear into position and the squeak will go away. If after a month or so (or if that time's already passed) they're still squeaking, they'll probably need a bit of lubrication (for poly bushings, I think a thin dab of white grease) to make them quiet.

I'm interpreting your note as this is a squeak that happens with the suspension is moving -- compressing or extending. If that's not the case, you probably have to look for something rubbing.

Re: Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension

Actually, its not squeaking during compression or extension, it only squeaks when I go in reverse, not over bumps. I thought it was something rubbing too, but the car isn't stupid slammed or anything, can't seem to figure it out.

Weird thing is the noise is only noticeable in reverse.

Re: Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension

r u sure a dust shield didnt get bent and just happens to touch a little when u back up ?? check and see how close the dust shield is to the rotor .. if not im gonna guess boots on cv shafts or shafts themselves . you chang the norman angle of the axle when u lower a car

Re: Wheel area squeeking after changing suspension
