body kit squeak

so when my car hits small bumps and all the body kit squeaks a bit. anyway to get rid of that squeak or am I just stuck with it, body kit was installed before I bought the car.

Re: body kit squeak

i am pretty sure it is, though its not my final answer, but if I lightly kick the front bumper kit thingy it squeaks as if it is going over bumps. So that is where I thought it was coming from.

Re: body kit squeak

just wondering alot of mustangs have sqeeks from the tie rod, seen this on quite a few. As far as the kit, is it where it meets with the fender or where the kit meets with the bumper. you may need to get soemone to put some urathane sealer if there are any gaps allowing the bumper to move.

Re: body kit squeak

Re: body kit squeak

I still need to tighten down my driver rear shock....but yeh, find out exactly where it's coming from, and see what you can do to seal it.

Re: body kit squeak

update: took the front razzi bodykit part off, washed and waxed the front end then installed it and no more squeak.
