    Horrendous Squeak XP4

    After the ride down at Bundy Hill my 2012 Polaris RZR XP4 acquired a horrendous metal on metal squeak. I went through and tightened all the roll cage bolts thinking that is where it was coming from. Took it out for a ride and that was no help. After much searching and taking things apart I found that it was the front shocks. There are metal bushings on the upper and lower shock mounts. I took the shocks off and cleaned and put some anti-seize on the bushings. After getting it all back together and taking it for a ride the squick is gone.
    Dave,

    I had a squeak in my rzr 4 800. I took all the shocks off and lubed the heim joints. No more squeak for me either.

    I had a horrible squealing on the passenger side of my RZR 800.
    It wasn't there all the time.
    Mostly when I went too fast, off camber trails, or steep climbs.

    I would not notice it when my wife stayed home..

    I read that to my wife and she accused me of putting it on the forum.

    I read it to my wife also and it went over as well as my suggestion that Rugged Radios add a control button to their intercoms so the driver could mute to passenger or co-driver.
