Suspension Squeaks and Creaks
 
Our 2003 GT was an Arizona car all of it's life until we brought it to Washington State in March. The suspension is squeaking both when bounced up and down or when turned side to side. In the "old" days I would say a lube job and or a spray of rubber lube would be needed. Since everything is sealed I'm not sure how to quiet it back down. Appreciate any ideas at all. Thanks Y'all!!!!

My PT did the same thing. The bushings can be replaced but they can also be lubed. And squeaking does not necessarily indicate a worn bushing. I've had new bushings squeak on other cars. Search the forum for "squeaks" and you should find several remedies. I would inspect the bushings, replace the ones that need it and lube the rest.
