Default Annoying front end Squeak in 91 Accord Ex

Hi Everyone

Well I have a 91 Accord EX and it has always run like a charm. The
usual glitches but there are no complaints here.

About 1 month ago I started to get a squeak in the left front end. When
I say squeak, it turns heads and makes people look! It sounds like
rubber to rubber or very dry rubber.

It has continued to grow to the point when I turn the steering wheel
mostly from the center position from left to right to left, it is really
bad. It also will squeak when I push down on the fender to exercise the
suspension. The same goes when I brake and accelerate.

Now this sounds easy to fix, just spray WD40 or oil on all of the
suspension parts but that didn't work.

Here is what I have changed to this date:

Top Ball joint with the Y member
New struts and springs (Found both springs broke)
Bushings for torsion bar on left side
lubricated everything I could disassemble or get my hands on

The noise is definitely from the left side but it is driving me nuts.
Any suggestions would be great.

Steve

Probably the lower ball joint. It's a distructive test, but you can
poke a hole in the boot with the wheel off the ground, and spray a
little silicone in the joint and see if the noise goes away. You'll need
to replace the joint to fix it. bob
