Aight, this is concerning my 1998 ZX2

Whenever I go fast down a straightaway and there is a dip in the road the suspension travels as it should, but when it travels down there comes a high pitched screech from the struts with the most / too much load.

This also happens on the front struts on a hard turn either left or right in second gear going about 40-50 km/h and accelerating hard.

Is this just me abusing the suspension if so should I just look to upgrade to suspension to handle my style of driving, or is the stock suspension going on the fritz?

Also, I just started getting a squeak from the brakes when the brake is depressed (after being pressed down for a short period of time). I'm not sure if this is happening all the time (during my driving because there is a lot of road noise) it is really only noticible when at a stop, is this a result of the brake lines acting up?

Peace

Gabe

Have you looked at the struts yet to see if there is any damage on the spings and piston rod?
Also...check your brake pads....it sounds a bit like you over glazed the rotors/pads when they were newer...or you did some long,hard,hot braking sometime in the summer.

Deglaze the rotors and see if that fixes that one problem at least.

I had a simular problem with mine 91 lx once, only it wasn't a sqeel or sqeak it was a vibration, I replace all 4 struts and the problem persisted. I was beside myself until someone sugested I check my cv joints. All the boots looked fine, no leaks, everything looked good. I wasn't convinced this was the problem, but out of frustration I replaced both axels anyway and the problem was solved. Good Luck!
