I know what it is, its my steering. Its coming from that rubber bushing right under the pod. Is it greaseable? Can I oil it? Its annoying when I drive around. I thought it was my suspension or rotor but its my steering forsure.

Thanks for the help, post wh-ores need help too you know.

i wouldnt use WD40, i would go with a thicker lube, try an auto parts store. WD40 doesnt last long enough, and im sure its not the kind of thing that you want to do all the time you know:?

Try Lithium Grease... you can get a tube real cheap from the auto parts store. Works great.

You don't want so much in there that it gums up with dirt/sand.

Service manual says to use grease, no recommendations in the manual though. I have heard of a needle like end that can be put on the end of a grease gun, then you could just squeaze some in between the shaft and bushing.

as for the needle attachment for a grease gun, i have one. i got it at schucks. you might try sears or your local auto parts...
works great on bearings that are hard to get at to pack them with a litttle fresh grease or when you only need a little.
