Installed 2.5 inch Radflo coilovers couple weeks ago. Love what they did for my 08.

But I have a mild squeak in the front end now. Haven't isolated it yet, having trouble pinning down exact location. Is there a specific spot from which this usually comes?

No UCA's. Didn't really go for a lot of lift. Just leveled it out after adding bumper/winch combo.

I will check any bushings I can find in the front end. But my understanding is there are no grease fittings other than the drive shafts.

How do I silence them lol?

Check the UCA uniballs, either the stock ones are going or the current ones need lubrication.

I just traced down a very annoying squeak that sounded like it was coming from my steering column.
It ended up being my ICON uniballs needing a little silicon spray. No more squeak, I'd start there!

Good luck HYDRO556

Lol if the stock ones go right after I changed the coilovers it must have been something I did.

I'll spray them tonight and see what happens, thanks.

My the bottom of my Radflo 2.5 rubbed on the sway bar drivers side... A little grinding on the sway bar fixed it right up :)
I have clearance (Clarence) everywhere. The install went great. Just started noticing very mild squeaking since. Hopefully a little spray will fix me up.

Use Triflow or Boeshield T-9 on the uniball. Typical silicon sprays will attract dirt which will wear it out.

Thanks for the advice, I will go buy a bottle of Tri flow!
