Sqeaky mounts

Any suggestions for something to spray car undercarriage joints that squeak with anything other than WD-40 which washes off?

The constant squeak usually comes from the lower spring perch. The best thing to do is replace them. It's not a bad job if you know how to get the springs out in a safe manner. I don't know of any quick fix that works.

If it's the spring perch (like matcox suggested), you can get poly bushings for it and then use a lithium based grease on it, not petroleum based. Also could be where the lower control arms bolts to the frame, that's a non grease zert joint. You could put polys there as well, but if you replace those you'll have to mark carefully the location or get an alignment after.

That's right. There are aftermarket improvements for all the suspension parts.

you can also get roller spring perches as well for not too much more money, and they work better than any with a rubber or urethane bushing.
