    ARB bush squeak

    Ok so my rear arb bushes are squeaking like mad, it is thoroughly frustrating I promise you.
    I have replaced the bushes and drop links and coated everything with silicone lube.
    This stopped the squeak for about a week but now it is back again and it is definitely the ARB bushes.

    The question I have is can I shave off some of the inside of the bush to reduce some friction on the ARB. I can't see a problem with it but I thought I'd check before I break something

    Many thanks, Tom.

    pretty sure you should be using grease not lube. I had to re-do mine a while ago usually stops it for atleast 6months but it is weather depentent.
