Icon5 Squeaky sound from the back

It's getting frustrating hearing the squeaky sound while going over bumps.
It all started when I didn't saw the speedbump and went through it at about 30km/h. My friend says maybe the shock broke or the springs got wrecked but I don't know. I recently changed the Anti-roll bar on both sides and also the sway bar bushings on both sides. Maybe it's the new bushing that's making the noise? Anyone had similar squeaky noise maybe and can help?

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

Is it a poly bushing? Those need lithium grease to hush them up. You would know if the spring broke, that side would be low.. Upper control arm bushing possibly. Get under that noisy side and have a buddy push down on your fender and isolate that squeak it will vibrate a bit too for confirmation. Hope that helps

Would WD-40 be enough? The car is standing symmetrical and pushing it down makes absolutely no noise.

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

That chemical will eat the bushing as if it was at fat burger... And besides, u are still unsure which one it is. No wd40 on rubber, poly or silicon. Who installed the sway bar and bushings? Since those are now tight and strong, something else may have gotten weaker.
Open the trunk, stand on the strong ledge and hop up and down to find the squeak.

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

Can u get under to feel which bushing it is? Sound like your upper control arm bushings. Those bushings are small. There is a big one in the lower control arm too, but a bit less likely.

This all started after the new part installed? Could even be e sway bar bushing. But sounds like an elevated location the sound comes from the fender..

So thats what makes the squeak...



not the exact same problem as yours, but on the same track. mine was the endlink bushing.

These were the links I changed. These are pretty good made in germany imgur: the simple image sharer
And these were the bushings

My squeak isn't that bad. I can't make it by just pressing the car down with my strength I needed to pull my weigth down bu standing in the trunk pretty hard.
While changing my friend said that ball joints on driver side is getting bad but on the passenger side it wasn't that bad. Maybe that's the case?

Isolated, just meaning narrowed down. Looks like you're getting closer to solving it. Good stuff

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

There's a bushing at the top of the rear shock tower that squeaks or clunks...it was a Honda TSB at some point alerting folks the bushing 'squishes' in time and causes a syndrome they called "shock knock". I call mine "trunk clunk".

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

Strange thing because the squeak is gone. At least I think it's gone because I'm not hearing it anymore. Last night it was very cold at least -16 below celsius (5F). And my central lock failed at the driver side so now only the passenger side works (btw 2months ago I fixed the central lock failure at the passenger seat side ) I got inside the car, drove for about 1 hour and I didn't hear a single squeak. Maybe the cold did something

Re: Squeaky sound from the back

Ya that's possible if it's metal on metal something may have contracted a bit. Mine got quiet when it was wet out.
