I previously had the Eibach lowering springs on my 2013 CTS coupe. With the constant alignment issues, harsh ride i decided to go back to stock springs. I have squeaking coming from the front of the car, both driver and passenger sides. It did this when the car was lowered but seems even worse now that its back at stock height.

Does this sound like bushings need to be replaced? I replaced the passenger shock recently as it was seeping oil. Any help is appreciated before heading into the dealer.

If so, then maybe that's why you didn't like the Eibach springs. I have no squeaking and the ride is still pretty decent. I see no reason to back to stock.

Probably just need lubed. Hopefully there's grease fittings on them. If not you'll have to try to get it with some penetrating spray.

The bushings are nylon or something and there are no grease fittings. It seems like I remember a post from way back that the owner had squeaking and solved it by rotating the springs slightly to match the impressions left by the OE springs. Of course I could be wrong, I'm 71 years young.

I've taken it to my local tire shop and they've lubed it twice. Doesn't help whatsoever. I did have a seeping shock which the dealer denied due to the car being lowered at the time. I had that replaced, didn't help the squeaking at all. A trip to the dealer is imminent, and quite possibly new truck time.
