Hey guys, I have very nice original 65 Galaxie with original rubber grommets and I have a very annoying squeak at slow speeds that happens, especially on braking. I first thought this was in the suspension components (and I think part of it was). I lubed everything there to improve it, but it still happens when coming to a stop. I can't make it happen with the car standing still and rocking it on the springs, so I think it must be in the frame to body mounts. Can somebody give some tips on how to remedy this, where to spray, etc.? Thanks for any advice!

Check the upper control arm bushings- I had the squeak issue, those needed to be replaced. Cheap parts, but lots of work to do it, but the squeak is now gone.

Thanks guys. I lubed the control arm bushings and that stopped the squeak when I bounce the car by hand, but the squeak I'm dealing with only happens when driving and really noticeable when braking. Must be the forward momentum of the car puts a force on whatever is making the noise. I'll check the strut rod bushings...at least those are easier to get at for replacement.

I had a 68 Mustang with worn strut rod bushings.
They would squeak while driving.
The rod would “work” to and fro while driving causing the squeak.

"metalic or rubber generated?" might help too. Have some 1 else drive it so as to hear it from different place. We usually hear a noise coming from where we look (maxes it seem to come from there, where we look). Drive by as U wait curb side, etc. I once rode ona food t help a friend locate.

Last, what did U change. I mean when did it surface? Think back 2 first time. May B U changed something right B4 then...
