Re: Grease fittings?

Only grease fittings on rear are front and rear joints in drive shaft. Check for play / movement in wheel bearings. Trailing arm bearings are sealed and there are 4 bearings on each side so don't think you would hear them going out you may feel them going out but not hear them.

Check the swing arm/sway bar bolts to see if they've snapped off. Could also be the bed squeaking too.

Nope neither It is the rear arm that holds the swing arm. Can seem to get it to stop only when I pour penetrating oil to it. But it does it every time I ride it.

Are the bolts that hold the sway bar to the swing arm tightened properly?

Also if you have the Fox Shocks the pivot points on them get dry and have to be regreased there are 2 o-rings on each pivot point on the shock that get dry.
