Hello friends,

Now that my car ('69 Shadow) is on the road I have learned a thing or two. Some things are good, some not so fun. Here's a troubling observation.

When cold, the hydraulic pumps chatter a little but they quiet down. We've discussed that but here's the new observation. As the car warms up, the hydraulic rams 'howl' when they adjust. Actually, it sounds like the left side only making the noise, but its hard to tell. "Howl" is the best way I can describe it. When it moves, it makes that loud, low horn-like noise.

So, please tell me if you know if this noise is typical of some known problem. Perhaps the noise is just a suspension that hasn't been lubricated in 4+ years (I'll see to that tomorrow). Anyway, your advice would be appreciated.
