Pull out shocks and check swivel bushings. Usually seized. Take them apart and lubricate

Basically all front shocks squeak on every model, even the X3s. You can wear headsets or helmets with speakers and turn up the volume.

It’s an off road machine that’s almost 8 years old. They make noise . Lubricate and ride . Your not gonna fix it

Having the same issue. Is it only the upper and lower shock mounting locations that need to be checked and lubed? What did you use to lubricate them with? Are there any manufactures out there that produce a better longer lasting non squeaky alternative? Thanks!!

No matter what you try, or what you do, the squeaking will always return. It's the nature of the beast. It's an off road machine, not a Benz. And I can say that because I've tried everything, LOL.

I pulled my front shocks off and sure enough the swivel bushes where frozen so I took the rubber o’ring out and speared some wd-40 in the worked the bushings around and then repacked them with greases put them back in and no more squeaking
