Default 2007 funfinder x160

Hi, we purchased a used fun finder x160 and we were wondering if the susupension always makes squeaky noises?? Is this common with this year and model?
thanks.

Welcome to the forum !

As for the squeaking sound, I would say that any unusual sound should be investigated. No, it's not normal.

As gmw photographics pointed out; definitely not normal. The suspension units on these trailers are the "dry" type, i.e., no points of lubrication for the shackles or equalizers if equipped with dual axles. When new there are either hard coatings on the hanger bolts or nylon type bushings. With age and mileage, the hard coating wears away or the nylon bushings wear through and what you wind up with is dry "soft metal" making contact with the shackle tubes - squeaking. On a 2007 with some miles on it, that's to be expected. Replacement bolts and or bushings are not expensive to buy nor to replace and well worth the time and money if that is the issue. You could even "upgrade" to what are called "wet bolts"...those have a Zerk grease fitting in them and you can periodically hit them with a grease gun and they will last, virtually, forever.

Hi, thank you,gmw phtographics&webslave for your quick response.
Shall look into this info and look into the upgrade. (we are newbies at this). We have single axle.(embarassing with all that noise parking) Just hope as u said it's worth the little bit of time and money to correct it.
thank you.
