Squeaking front suspension

My 2002 Mountain Master has developed a loud squeak that seems to be directly related to the left front air bag. Any rocking of the coach or removing and adding air to suspension results in a loud groan. It does not sound like metal on metal but rather a creaking of a rubber bushing. Spartan Chassis tech support could not come up with an explanation. Has anyone dealt with this before? Any suggestions?

It may be your ball joints complaining about lack of lubrication in the event that the boots have failed.

I would get a can of Boeshield T-9 and liberally spray the ball joints if that is the case.

The T-9 has excellent lubrication and wicking properties.

Cheap way to investigate if this is your issue.

Ball joint or solid front axle? My solid axle was doing that. Spartan was no help. I called Hendrickson, the company that builds suspension for Spartan. There was a service bulletin on it. It's a simple fix. Remove the bolts that go through the front hanger, grease them and reinstall. No more squeaks.
