My rear right suspension is squeaking. I've lubricated it with oil a few times and it always comes back. Do I need to use a high quality grease and if so how do I apply it - can't find a fitting.
Do you
have the same problem?

This will proberbly be a worn suspension bush, these Jobs really need to be checked by a qualified mechanic, oiling will not do any good at all, any worn component will need to be replaced.

Take pic of where you oil. Motorcycle chain lube in a spray lasts longer than just oil.

The oil will in fact ruin all the good parts. Oil and rubber don't play well together. Always use silicone on anything rubber but I agree with mhpautos though. Lubrication isn't going to fix anything. Find the offending part and replace it.
