Squeak after lowering

Good morning all,

I just installed eibach sportline springs and a BMR pan hard. I didn't replace shocks and struts. I will get to them eventually. After about a week of having the new springs on, I'm hearing a lot of squeaking happening over bumps and general slightly uneven road surfaces. The only time I don't hear the squeaks is on a highway. Not sure if the road noise going that speed drowns out the squeaks or if it's an even enough surface that the squeaks aren't happening. If anyone can help me on finding the squeaks. Maybe you've experienced this too. Thank you in advance.

It's not the shocks and struts. I changed mine and I still get the same squeaks you do. Low speed bumps or rough roads but nothing on the highway.

Hmm... you think there's a place to grease up?

Did you lube up your Panhard bar bushings? If not, that's my guess

It should have come with some line for poly bushings (I'm assuming you don't have spherical bushings)

Im not sure what bushings I have? I got the BMR adjustable ph bar off AM. And what line that should have been included are you talking about. I think the only thing that came in the box was the ph.

He meant to type "lube". Poly bushings need plenty of it. I didn't put enough on mine during install and had to go back a couple of months later and do it again.

I was able to grease up the one side of the pan hard and now that I'm writing this I just realized that I think I have it on backwards. I can't get to the driver side grease point because it points straight down and it's blocked off. And the other side grease point is parallel to the pan hard. So... I'll fix that tonight. But I think I was semi able to get some grease in on the driver side (maybe not though.) it still squeaks. And I was riding around this morning with my head out the window. And I'm 99% sure the squeaks or at least a majority of them are coming from the back. The only thing I can think of making the noise are the LCAs. Now that the car has a new symmetry. They may be riding 'funny' so now I need to figure out how and where to maybe put some grease on the LCAs.

I believe you can unscrew those grease fittings and swap them as opposed to taking the whole panhard bar off.

Well I'll remember that advice for someone else. I didn't check here in time. Thanks though!
