    So, my 00 civic has 120K at 60K I replace the struts with monroe's, shortly after I notice a squeaking coming from the rear suspension. I have sprayed lithium grease on bushing etc... this seemed to help until the next rain. About 5 months I replaced the struts again, this time with Koni perfomance struts and also installed eibach proline springs. In addition I installed energy suspension bushings on the spring cap and mount parting (don't know name). I still have the same noise. The noise is only noticable at slow speeds over rolling bumps, especially when backing up. Any tips on how I might isolate, or has anybody had this problem?

    Thanks for your help

    Mike

    perhaps its not the suspension you changed, but more so on the arms and legs of the suspension parts them selves. spray those down, 1 part at a time, drive it, till it goes away.

    Good idea. I think it might be one or both of the compensator bushings on the swing arms
