swing arm squeak?

I'm pretty sure it's my swing arm but whenever I turn I have an annoying high pitched squeak coming from the right side. I have no clue what to do. Or what the problem is. Anyone help please

Re: swing arm squeak?

Does it squeek when you are parked and just turn the wheel? It could be your steering rack bushings or the steering rack mounts rubbing on the k-member.

Re: swing arm squeak?

spray some WD-40 on the steering rack bushings see if it gets better, does it go away when its raining hard?

I found where the squeak is coming from and I'm pretty sure it's the lower a arm connects to the shock. I put some lubricant on it and it sorta fixed it. I put more on it today so we will see how it works out if not I'll try and get it fixed at a dealer or mechanic cause I dot have a spring or shock condenser or whatever it's called

Use a floor jack to compress the strut by raising the a-arm. This will allow you to unbolt the strut safely.
