Hello guys,

so my truck had a squealing sound going over bumps, or me getting in. So i found that this bushing is the one making the noise, sprayed some WD40 and the noise stopped.

Now my question is, should I buy it new? or just keep lubing it?

Also, what is the process to replace it?

and name???

WD40 is not really a lube. It is a water-displacing degreaser I believe.

It's a body mount bushing. It insulates the frame from the body (the cab, in this case). I've seen a few fail on the R51 Pathfinder forum I moderate. Replacing it involves removing the bolt, jacking up the body of the vehicle slightly off the frame and then replacing the bushing assembly with the new parts (you may have to remove several body mount bushing bolts in order to get enough clearance to swap out the bushing). There is usually a metal sleeve through the center of the bushing that can rust over time. As far as what to do, that's really your choice. The correct way would be to replace it, unless you enjoy lubricating it every couple of weeks (I'm sure you don't).
