Re: Squeaking/Scraping noise from 90 20VQ

No, I have the spring squeak, and it is just a squeak, just
like you'd expect from a 2" spring.

Angela's 90Q20V and my old 100Q both have a small clunk, I
suspect it is aging causing sloppy, stretched out, oval holes
in some suspension components, maybe the control arms.
