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: Ball Joint Squeaking

it's probably a bushing, balljoints should be packed with grease from factory. Oh, and dont b spraying seafoam all up in your balljoints, not the best idea.

Re: Ball Joint Squeaking

I agree with this^^^

Use White Lithium Grease or a Silicone Spray Lube/grease.
