Question about 1998 Lincoln Navigator

1 Answer

Front end squeeking

I have a 1998 Lincoln MarkVIII LSC,
When you turn the steering wheel the front end squeeks, but only after driving the car and the car is warmed up.
Also, when you go over a bump there is a squeeking noise.
We have replaced the lower and upper control arms. One mechanic said the the bushings were dry. Don't know how this can be because it has only been 3 months since the new lower control arms were put on.
What do you think the problem is?

Thanks,
Dena

It's normally ball joints that make the squeaking noise. You can put grease in them with a needle. Then take silicone and put over the needle hole. You can go to Napa and get an alimite needle and put grease into the rubber boots on the upper and lower ball joints. Hope this helps. Phil

Steering wheel squeeks. sounds like a rubber bushing squeek when turning wheel.


CHECK THE INNER TIE-RODS LOCATED BEHIND THE CENTER OF THE ENGINE. NEAR THE FIREWALL. THERE YOU WILL FIND THE TWO TIE-RODS CONNECTED BY A FIGURE 8 LOOKING DEVICE. WHILE AN ASSISTANT TURNS THE STEERING WHEEL, TAKE NOTE OF THE LOSS OF MOTION FOUND IN THE STEERING. BY REPLACING THIS INNER TIE-ROD ASSEMBLY, YOU WILL REGAIN THE LOSS OF MOTION IN THE STEERING WHEEL TO THE FRONT TIRES WHICH MAY BE WEARING OUT ON THE INSIDES OF THE TREADS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

I have a squeek in the front end.


Sway Bar End Link
Common wear out part for the Ford's
Look under the front end you will find a bar that attaches to the frame in the front and to the A frames on each side,
The squeek will turn into a bang at some point, ....replace both and it will feel as if you have a new car.
let me know if I can help with installation.
Please rate this solution.

Squeeks from front end, 1999 explorer sport


you did not indicated when the squeek occurs. If you turn the steering wheel and there is a dry squeek look at the tie rod ends. If you bounce the truck and the squeek is heard look at the stabilizer bar bushings {most common cause } If this is the cause, lubing them is a temporary fix they should be replaced.

The steering wheel squeeks when turned!


Check the power steering fluid and add as necessary. Many Toyota steering wheels meow when turned and it is not abnormal just annoying!
