    still new needs oiling Very squeaky!

    Like the title says, what or where should I oil or grease? It squeaks as the wheels roll but I don't know what I should oil.

    What other maintenance things should I be doing ?

    Cv joints in the axles,all the pivot balls in the rockers and shocks.i would recommend a silicone lube or something that dries somewhat or it just attracts crud,fine abrasive crud usually.
    Suspension arms have been known to squeak .

    well I paid a visit to my local box store and got me a little tool box for everything, some small cutters, needle nose pliers and two different kinds of lube. I can't member what brand the lube is but they both are silicone based and come in a container that you squeeze as apposed to spray so I get a drop of lube not a spray. I'm stoked!
