Default 01 z28 question

car is lowered 2inches all the way around on eibach lowering springs im not that big of a fan of it, the front end just had brand new sway bar links,bushings inner/ outer tie rods and balljoints all done. the front end makes a squeaky sound when i go over bumps, its annoying as all hell. is it just from the lowering kit or something else possibly? Thanks guys!

Did you use poly bushings? There's a special kind of grease for those.

lower ball joint greasable? if so shoot it with some grease. the grease they are putting in these things now is a joke. barely anything! and they can squeak out of the box.
