Question about 2000 Chrysler Sebring
2000 Sebring Convertible
Had my struts replaced ($200.00 per wheel-all four) now the front end squeaks like a creaking door when braking and turning. Repair shop claims it is the wheel bearings and wants additional $350 per wheel? This doesn't seem right that both would go out at the same time..any ideas? p.s. Thank you for this website...has helped us tremendously...
The reason why ur car squeaks is the ball joint i have a chrysler and same thing happened n my friend knows a lil bit bout cars had the same prob with hiss car and then the tire came of came to find out it was the ball joint causing the squeaks its not bearings or ur brakes car places told me same thing didnt fix it it is 100 percent ur ball joint and when u ask for the part ask for a lower control arm with a ball joint and install it by whoever

Well, first of all you need to get away from that mechanic. For 200 dollars you should have been able to do all of your struts max 400 all four. Thats 800 you paid??????
Anyway. Bearings do not creak, if a bearing is bad you will either hear something similar to hum, hum, hum noise and if they are realy bad it would be a grinding noise. So forget the bearing, this guy is trying to take you for a ride.
Suggest you take the vehicle to a competent front end shop and have them check your rubber bushings in the front suspension.
You might want to consider taking the car to another shop to have it check out for that installation
It sounds to me like he might of left the rubber cushioner off, thus producing the squeak. Since I don't know if you replace the springs or not. Squeaky sounds are worn rubber bushings, and when was the last time you lubricated your ball joints?.
Since the problem seems to have started with the change of struts, I would have to guess something was not done correctly.
Did you have the struts change with springs? Or just the struts.?

There are no grease fittings on the original front suspension parts of my 1996 sebring convertible and thats why it squeeks and creeks. if you want to spend alot of money to replace all the parts with new ones with grease fittings, go for it. i just play the radio loud. lol and enjoy the original 80,000 mile car with no payments.
