Sure. When you are underneath looking up at your wheel axle, you will see 2 lines/cables running to the wheel. One will be a steel line/tube that will have brake fluid in it. The EM-cable will come down the center of the car and split both ways. Look for this cable to make a 90 degree turn towards your wheel and you will see what looks like a wired loop. Mine didn't show any signs of wear, but grease did the trick for me. If you look back farther in this thread you should see a picture of it, but covered in grease.

In the future if you want to avoid squeaks and rust Always have your car oil sprayed every few years. Make sure they spray all the cables suspension components supper well. It will be the best $100 you will ever spend.

I agree with the oil spray. When I was growing up, hate to date myself, but back in the 70's, I knew a guy that owned a very early VW bug. He had a drive over pit in his garage. He used that to oil his VW every spring and fall. The Bug looked like brand new with no rust one it what so ever. Of course he always wore a rain suit too... :) I don't know anyone that does that anymore...
