my back upper shock mount is the worst. i use wd-40 but it is hard to get too. once lubed it will ussually last about 2 weeks.spay a spot and push the back end down, keep moving around till the squeek is gone.

Mine will squeek if I jump a lot or ride through mud or water puddles but I pressure wash and grease after every ride and it stops. I know what you mean though about noises you hear that you dont want to be hearing.

i had this same problem. i cleaned the shocks off real good then i bought shock covers to keep crap out of them then sprayed them down with some WD40. then u gotta hop on and work it in. then spray it again. it will go away you jsut gotta keep it clean and lubed!

If wd40 doesnt work then ya you will probably have to grease.

for the front you have to take em out and bush out the bushing on the one sideand clean it with brake cleaner, then grease it and push it back in, then grease bolth bolts and that will take care of the front for a while. on the back its a little harder to clean because allot of shit and dirt will be in the heim joints on the top and bottom. use brake cleaner and an air gun.. grease the shit out of it put it in and you will be doing it again real soon. i'll be putting grease fittings in mine this weekent and i will let you know how it goes.
