New Here, Got some sqeaks!

Hows it going guys! I'm Ryan and I'm a brand new Rhino owner and took my beast out last weekend...only to find that starting the trip our HCR LT kit was silent as the grave...and after my father beat on it over some whoops, its sqeakier than hell...here's a video to show the sound, its towards the end...




So I've concluded that the sound is coming from where the LCA's and UCA's connect to the frame...would it be safe to just lube them up with grease/wd-40?

Thanks guys!

-Ryan

Hmm well first off, welcome to THE rhino site

Little hard to hear with the wind, however, I wonder if you just have some dirt in the bushing which is causing the problem.

I would think some lube may help, but I am going to leave it to the pros to answer.

Maybe before you do anything, let a few more people respond to you, there is a TON of knowledge here, so you may get some other suggestions.

Shower all the moving parts on the LT Kit with lubricant, if it has the zirk fitting in the A arms try to grease them up. If the squeaks become louder they are coming from the upper A arms hemi joints. You'll need to call the LT company and have them resend you new A arms hemi joints. I had that problem in a huge way!


Nice ride!!

Thanks BSM, I just emailed the owner (personal friend and soon to be boss) and I'm awaiting his response =)

Thanks bud! I'll do a search and see if I can find your Rhino on here

Here a video of mine....warning turn down your speaker volume


Culprit was the hemi joints on the upper A Arms... after we replaced them it squeaks gone. I only had 2 days of ride on them.
