    EVO Tire Carrier Squeaks

    Eddie, I saw what looked to be rubber boots on the pins of the tire carrier on Moby at the New Year Kick Off but unfortunately at the time didn't take a closer look or ask you about them. Are they to prevent squeak? If so, where did you get them?
    My carrier is pretty tight, no rattle, but I do have a squeak.

    I had/have this off and on. You need to adjust the Currie end joints (on the pin side) so they are offset from each other a bit. This will add tension to the joint locations and help reduce squeaks.

    Couple other tricks. I went and got grade 8 bolts that were slightly larger than the pins provided and offered less gap in the joints.

    Not my trick, but another person I know put a plastic water bottle cap on the Currie joint to prevent the metal on metal.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    I'll see if I can get a half turn in opposite directions out of each of them in the morning. Thanks JAGS.

    To add on to what Jags said... I personally would buy a stack of delrin washers. Delrin or Acetal is a 'lubricious' plastic that can take quite a bit of force and shouldn't squeek. Not sure what the prices are, but we use it at work all the time. Quick search brought up these guys.

    Simple. Spray some silicon lubricant on the brackets where the carrier joints contacts them.

    This I will also do in the morning and will probably solve it.
    Thanks MTG.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
