I probably have a few more spots to find and hit but WOW! Yes..it is expensive but it already is 100% worth it.

Is there a suggested time frame to reapply this ? every month? 3 months 6 months? I'd use it everyday if there was value.

Thanks again for the suggestions. Great product here!
I just use the stuff as needed but it won't hurt to use it more often as a preventive measure.

Question...I can't see what is really connecting into the tire/rim as far as connections nor do I know much about the details but is there any value of a blind spray behind there?

I can only turn my wheel so far so can't really see in there without having her jacked up.

If you're talking about the ball joints and tie rod ends, theres no need to spray anything there. The boots on these links are sealed, so unless you want to pinhole the boots and spray some in there, you can leave them alone. If you get a noise from one of those joints down the road, you might try it then.

So my focus here is anything i can see in the front wheel wells with the wheel fully turned...seems to be a ton of stuff there that could benefit from a spray or two....i could have missed something so I'm chalking the noise up to me just missing something for now...more tomorrow morning when I can re-spray....really hoping I can find this because the noise is driving me nutz since I'm such a perfectionist.

What I can say is that all 4 doors open as if they were brand new now thanks to a few quick sprays in each.

If it only squeeks on bumps, you might need new shocks/struts. if you park your ride and get out and push down repeatedly on the front end, like your testing the shocks, does the squeek appear? if so, i would look into getting them adjusted if possible or replacing the bushings on the mounts for them or just replacing them entirely. I dont know much about shocks and struts though, so i dont know if they even can be adjusted.

Default Still there!

Darn squeak is still there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lubed everything i could see in the front wheel wells. I'm wondering if this is something else now. Feel like it could be a plastic piece of the hood or a loose piece under the hood (ie. latch or something). Driving me insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!
