Help with ATV shocks
i have a 2007 honda rancher 420 and the middle back shock squeaks every now and then and always when you put preasure on the back of the fourwheller. I was wondering if there is something i can or if i need to buy something like a grease or if i can put WD40 on it i dont know if theat is good for it though.

Wd40 will perfectly fine to get rid of the squeak. If you take the shock off you can put some oil in the eye of the shock, it will keep it from squeaking longer.

I certainly would not use ANY petroleum based lubricant or lubricant containing ANY petroleum products on rubber ( like those shock bushings )

I recommend a good, high quality lubricant. I personally try to stick to the stuff LPS makes.

For the shock I think their Force 842 would work
I use the LPS1 on my firearms
Dry film PTFE is good too

Problem with wet oil or grease is it dust and dirt will stick right too it.
