I have a 69 Dart GTS that the torsion bars squeek. How do I eliminate this noise?
What made you certain the torsion bars squeek? There's nothing that could squeek on a torsion bar, unless something is maybe moving against it. Bushings however can squeek.
The noise is coming from the front of the torsion bar. Are there bushings made that don't squeak?
It's more likely that the lower control arm bushing is squeaking. Use penetrating oil to locate the squeak.
I had a squeak coming from my front end (front of the torsion bar). I just pulled my front suspension apart and the lower control arm bushing was toast.
Poly bushings can do that, mine do everytime I get in the car and go over bumps.
I'll check the control arm bushings. Thanks for all the tips.
That’s because they’re not properly lubricated. If they haven’t been changed recently, they’re probably just worn out stock bushings in need of replacement.
