There is a squeek in the front end, Just put new brakes in but it still squeeks. Could this be a CV joint or a Bearing? The noise is present with or without the brake s applied. There is no vibration and...


worn CV joints "click," but only upon turning.
worn bearings "grind," with a faint metal-on-metal sound.
So, squeaking in the front end is unlikely to be a CV joint or a bearing.
Squeak could be almost any front suspension component, but here's the reason to stop
guessing what it is and jack up the car, remove the two front tires and inspect the
front suspension: it could be a bolt/nut
that is loosening - and by catching it, and tightening it, you could save yourself the cost of
replacing the missing hardware. Also, be aware that an inspecting mechanic (if your state or
county requires a safety inspection (like Pennsylvania)) will inspect all components of your car's
front suspension as a routine component of your car's safety inspection.
Also:

1-----Inspect----- Coil Spring----- Broken or Weak Coil Springs.
2-----Inspect----- Sway Bar Bushing----- Worn, Damaged, or Faulty Stabilizer Bar Bushings.
3-----Inspect----- Steering Stabilizer Bracket----- Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket.
4-----Inspect-----lower ball joints-----Loose bolt/rubber bushing to lower control arm.
5-----Inspect-----Upper Ball Joints-----Loose bolt/missing rubber bushing.
6-----Inspect-----Connecting Rods-----(these are the rods that connect the lower control arm to the
front of the frame) Check for loose nut (on the frame side), or loose bolts (on the control arm side).

Front suspenion. I'm getting a lot of loud creaking when going over bumps and turning corners. I know it's not the C.V. joints. I tried to lube but there are no fitings. Is there a way to lube this...


Dear,

I think the front axles have worned out due to which it makes noise while taking a turn around.

and also get the shockers checked due to which it squeeks while on move.

thanx

The front of the car squeeks when you push up and down and makes the same noise when you turn the steering wheel either way.


If your car is about 10 years or older chances are that the front rubber suspension components are worn and rubbing agaings their housing. There are at least 4 areas for each front tire that could be worn: Strut housing, control arm bushings, center control arm bushings, or stabilizer bar bushings. There are ball joints that can wear too, but usually do not make noises at a standstill. My suggestion is to go to any tire store and have them look put the car up on a rack for a thorough inspection. Most people let these parts go for too long and the cost gets high to replace. You obviously are very careful with your car so this should be a routine suspension fix for the garage. Good luck.

When I go over a small bump or any change in the road, I hear a small but incessant squeek. I can not locate the noise but i assume it is coming from the suspension.l David


It is hard to find squeeks, It could be bushings, struts, tierods, balljoints, even engine and transmission mounts. The worst one I found after five other people they said was in the dash. vynil was dry and most everytime you hit a bump it would squeek. I sprayed it down heavily with armorall and cured the squeek. Good luck

Squeaking noise with acceleration


arm yourself with a can of silicon spray and use it where you think the squeek is coming from,if you do it bit by bit you can then sort out the squeek at source....may take awhile but it WORKS.
i once had a client who moaned for months about a front squeek on a volvo,we had it in 30 plus times....i found it....the rear door rubber
seals were dry.....he insisted it was from the front.....

A squeeking type sound coming from the serpentine


Noise could be the result of a dried out belt, a belt that needs adjustment or any one of the pulleys driven by the belt. The oil pump has nothing to do with the belt. Inspect it and try tightening it up a bit. If that does not help, remove the belt and check all the pulleys for noise and rough turning, replace the belt and re-tighten.

I have a squeeking noise in the front on both sides i was told it was the controll arms needign to be replaced do we need to do the ball joints as well or do they come with both when replacing


you can either buy bottom suspension arms with the ball koint atached or just replace the ball joints.

If the suspension arms are shot, then you should be able to feel this when driving over cats eyes in the road. when the wheels contact the cats eyes they wonder, the steering wil feel like its going both ways, not tight, kinda lose?

Ball joints dont squeek they knock! most times its just as cheap to get ball joints and suspension arms/control arms as one. some things dont translate that good from UK to Us the parts have different names here, but thats the same part I mean. When you remove ball joints and in most cases you have to when replacing the arms, they get damaged and rarely last long after being put back in place, you may aswell pay now for one lot of labour than pay twice.

Hope this helps

ld still be the ball joints. yhe sound travels. place your hand on the ball joint and have someone bounce the car you can almost always fill the noise when you hear it.

Loud sqoeeking noise when turning front wheels


is it a squeeking or a squeeling....

If it is a squeeking noise, take the car to have every thing on the front suspention lubed up, is possible it is dried out.

If it is a squeeling noise, then that means you need a new drive belt.
