Hey, +3F this morning, I think winter's finally arrived in New 
Hampshire.  Thanks, Canada.   ;-(

Grumping to work in the A4, I heard a quiet, high-pitched repetitive 
squeak that sounded like it came fromt the r.f. corner.  Of course that 
doesn't mean it *is* coming from *that* corner, or even *a* corner....

Anyway the squeak is present all the time for the first few miles, but 
it's *not* rhythmic.  And it does go away after a few miles.  I kinda 
think it's related to road irregularities, which leads me to suspect 
it's coming from a bushing.

Do (factory) bushings squeak in cold weather?  Would a squirt of WD-40 
fix it?
