Default ZX5 Squeaking?

My ZX5 has developed a squeak that is rather annoying. When turning left at any sort of speed, the car will chirp loudly. Almost like a diff chirping or like the gear mesh is too tight. It only does it on right handers or a very hard g-out situation. Gear mesh is good, diffs are good, slipper is good. What else could it be???

You might want to check your wheel bearings...mine does the same thing periodically.

Yeah, I would be checking bearings if it was not the items you mentioned already.

standard balls in the diffs? best u upgrade to ceramics. mine after 1 year is still perfect the ball and the diff plate, even though a bit of dirt gets in there.

Make sure there is not a small field mouse living in your gear case.
