Hi Anonymous, you can take the springs apart and de-rust them then rub a little grease on the perches. Good luck

It is hard to tell with out more detail as to what makes it squeak. Does it squeak when you hit a bump, or while the vehicle is in motion? To test your struts simply push down on each front corner (above or next to headlight)as to rock the vehicle up and down. Pick a solid part as to not dent it. This is a good way to test your struts. If it goes up in a stiff motion(not rocking) its probably good. If it goes up and down easily and has a lot of play then your struts might need changes. The squeak could also be sway bar bushings as well. If it only squeaks when your in motion it could be your cv axle. If you are still in need please post more detail as to better diagnose the issue.

Why does my Royal star rear suspension squeak

Hi, Phil usually because you wash the bike a lot or ride in rainy weather it can easily be cured by spraying some WD-40 on the shock itself where you see any rust spots for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the blue links below.

2003 1800vtxR front suspension bottoming out over

If this bike has more than 15k on it the stock springs are likely worn out. Replace them with Progressive Suspension springs. They will last longer and the bike will rider better. They are also less expensive than stock replacements.

Suspension and steerin wheel

It is difficult to just assess wut is causing the suspension knock. U will have to go under the vehicle or let someone who is experience about this do it. Go under the vehicle and check the entire suspension system, steering ends, rack ends, ball joionts, rubber bushings etc. Well u said u have changed ur shocks but no difference. As for the squeaks, this might be coiming from the universal joint from the steering column. Like I said they really have to be inspected.
