    teocali super suspension help

    hi all
    i have a mongoose teocali super 2009.
    i had this problem for a long time but only now i want to fix it.
    the problem are the loosening of the rear suspension bearings and the creaks and squeaks i hear from it (especially when i pedal hard).

    i have put a lock-tight on all bearings.
    one of the bearings keeps opening and my questions are:
    1. does the creaks is the result of the bearing not being lock tightly enough? should i open them and put a new lock-tight and then close them really tight.
    2. how tight should i close the bearings?
    3. do i need to grease the bearings? how it should be done?

    10x in advance
    waiting for your help

    If the bearings are pressed into a relaxed fit bore they should be coated w/ Loctite # 680 (retainer compound). If you have bearings that are looser than others (coming loose) you might have bores that are damaged. I always pop my bearing dust seals and pack w/ grease.
