  • camber kit squêek

    my camber kit squêeks loud
    my question is how loud is it supposed to be normally
    if i turn my radio down i can hear it inside my car on both front corners
    is there anyway to stop it from doing this?
    thanks

    its not supposed to be loud at all, in fact you shouldn't even be able to hear it.... that is if you lube it up real good. If you dont' lube it up good it'll squeek like mad. And if you use a thin lube it'll wear off quick and start squeeking again.

    i used some really thick grease from the local autoparts store, cost me like $1 for a tub that i'll never be able to finish. My suspension stayed squeek free for over two years (with lots of driving).

      stupid question
      what part of the camber kit do i lube
      i would imagine if i were to lube it then it would easily get knocked out of alignment
      i dunno
      if u could explain to me where to lube that would be great
      thanks

              I lubed mine on the plastic (polyurethane) part of the camber kit that is in contact with the metal of the upper control arm. Haven't heard any squeeks yet.

                re: squeek

                Now the Ingalls camber kit does not come apart, so we are supposed to grease the outside of the kit? Between the rubber/poly bushings and the metal?

                    its pretty simple. the rubber/polyurethane bushing is the thing that causes the squeeking. So, you lube that up. Pretty much just lube up the whole bushing. That will make sure that all the moving parts/surfaces are lubed.

                    vtec-typer: the camber kit does come apart. I have an ingalls and took it completely apart to lube it up. It helps to have a vice to hold it in place.

                    also, make sure you guys use a really heavy duty thick grease. The thicker the better because the thicker it is the longer it will last. I used some really thick high temp "disk brake wheel bearing" grease. It cost like $.99 for a tub that is probably 10fl.oz. or so. It kept my kit squeek free for about a year and a half. But now its starting to squeek again.

                    The quick fix is to squirt the kit w/ wd40 or someother spray lube. But i believe that stuff only works for a couple weeks.


                    Sir Rev A Lot: the squeek you're talking about, is it tires squealing? or is it the camber kit squeeking? If its your tires squealing around turns a lot more than is normal then you need to get an alignment. Its a pretty good sign that your toe is drastically out of spec (which means your tires will probably be down to the belts in about a month or two).

                      So it does come apart? Did it come apart from ingalls, because I got mine assembled. Could I damage it in any way? And also would WD 40 be bad for rubber bushings? I would think so. Thanks

                            yes, the camber kit comes apart. How to take it apart? it was a long time ago when i took it apart, so i don't remember exactly. But its very self explanitory. Just take it off the car, and start pulling off a everything you can. you'll probably have to tap the middle metal sleeve out with a hammer and punch. Just get the kit out of the car and start pulling it apart, you'll figure it out.

                              ok i greased my camber kit up but i still have a squeek
                              it sounds like the bed squeeking noise during sex
                              thats the only way i know how to describe it
                              and its coming from the two front corners
