Hello,

I have a 2001 450S. I replaced the tie rod ends and ball joints. To do this I took off the knuckle and upper arm. Everything is put back together in what I believe is good order. I now have noticeable squeaking coming from the front suspension. I do not recall this from before the work. I assume that it is upper arm bolts but am not entirely sure. The upper arm bushings seemed to be in good shape - no noticeable damage or failure. Anyone have a similar experience or thoughts on what to look for or do at this point. I am really not looking forward to tearing this thing apart again but will do what needs to be done.

Thanks

(Honda Red) . . . Removed all the suspension bolts one at a time, and lubed them with wheel bearing grease. Works quite well. Where a rubber boot would normally be on a grease-able joint, mine are sealed with braided crank seal.
