Default Re: Squeaking Springer

I don't know what fork set you have. I purchased mine new, made in Taiwan. The pivot point of the forks was absolutely frightening. I drilled it out and inserted brass bushings to snug up the pivot and added washers on each side between pivot and fork. The whole area got a good dose of grease before reassembly. Maybe I'm lucky but no squeaks there or at spring system. (Yes suspension is set up to actually "give").

If you bought a new set for safety's sake take a good look at your fit and finish. Just an opinion.
