My Ride: 330xi
Screeching noise when turning.

Hello,
A few months ago I put a new suspension on my 330xi. Koni yellows with eibach springs and all new hardware and endlinks. Everything was fine until the weather started getting cold. Now when I turn the wheel I get a rubber on rubber screeching noise... Kind of like tires on a garage floor... Any ideas? Thanks

In for an answer to that one. I also replaced my suspension this year, replaced shocks with Koni FSD, and replaced the strut mounts with Meyle units. As soon as the weather got cold, I started hearing this creaking noise coming from the front end.
I looked at the upper mounts while someone was turning the wheel, and the rubber part wasn't moving, I could see the bearing moving. The noise certainly seemed to be coming from that area.
Are you supposed to pack the bearings with grease when installing? I didn't...
