Re: Squeaky Front end on 2003 Buick LaSabre
Sounds like the struts or possibly the ball joints,if your talking about the bushings in the front sway bar or the control arm bushings yes they do go bad. you can try to spray some wd 40 or other spray lubricate to see if that cures the problem

It's more than likely the ujoint in the front by the knuckle...You can jack your truck up and turn the wheel to the side it is squeaking the most. Turn the tire by hand and see what it feels like.If your u joint is bad it will bind when you spin your tire.
are you having problems with low pressuer imn power steering pump? the other could dryrot in (a) fram bushings ,if you use your whole body weight and push down on front end and you get same noise you'll narrow it down do this with motor off, hope this gives you some things to look at good luck.
This is a common problem. Your clutch pedal has a return spring on it, each end of which can squeak when dry. Look under the dash, and locate this. Dab a bit of grease at each end of the spring where it hooks around. Work the pedal up and down a few times and the squeak should go the way of the Honda Element.
Dear Squeaky......if this noise ONLY persists upon the action of braking......then might I suggest a annual brake check? Is it more of a high-pitched squeal? Should be.....Pretty much any automotive shop out there....less dealers....will give your vehicle a free brake inspection....expect to pay a repair bill of about $130 for front brakes.....and a little less for rears.Unless of course you would like to get a little grease under them there nails of yours......but....then they can't call ya squeaky...can they? Youcan do brakes yourself for about half the price.......and have the pride of knowing what you can do.....get back to me if you need any assistance . HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!
A 1996 Buick Lasabre is a front wheel drive (FWD) car, so the front of the motor is facing the front passenger side wheel of the car. That said, the power steering fluid reservoir should be close to the front passenger side wheel tower.
Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that side....so start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.
the squeak could be brakes or wheel hub/bearing. most likely it is the bearing and hub assembly, i would not drive it , take it to you local service station and have then replace or repair the hub assy.
