Lower Control Arm Squeak
So if you all have owned a Jeep Compass for a little bit, I'm sure your control arm bushings have gone out because the design is absolutely horrible. Anyway, I'm on my 3rd pair of lower control arms (maybe 4th)? Every time I replace them it's because I start to hear the annoying squeaking sound when the front goes over any change in elevation on the road - especially speed bumps. The sound becomes even more noticeable during colder weather when the bushings get hard.
This pair I just put in however started squeaking right off the bat! Got them off Rock Auto - but can't remember the brand.
Does anyone have a solution for this? Do you have the torque specs. for that nut? Maybe I am torquing it down too tight.
Anyone have a good brand they recommend?
