We have a squeaking problem in the front end suspension when we go over speed humps and drive into driveways

    We have the same problem with ours. However, the front and back both squeak on ours. The colder is is outside, the worse it gets. The dealer replaced the front ball joints three weeks ago. This did not solve the problem and they don't seem to know what the solution is. They have not closed out the ticket and have notified Mitsubishi Corporate. They still have not heard anything from them however. I have a feeling this is not a problem that is that rare. They gave me a loaner that did the same thing and they found one more used one on the lot that was squeaking also.

There is four possibility's for this 1. bad struts, 2. Bad ball joints 3.Bad lower control arm bushings; and 4. Bad sway bar bushing.

The control arm and sway bar bushing can be sprayed with a lube to possible eliminate one at a time these two.

The bad strut- does it look oilly inside the spring or rusted; eather or you may need to replace them (never replace as a single, always replace both).

Ball joints- rubber can picked to see if it is dry and rusty; if not and no greasce point they may need replaceing.

let me know and i'll help cut it down more.

How do I fix my F150 Ford from squeaking on the front driver side.


It's your universal joints. Your universal joints have become warn and what's happening is as you accelerate its moving and the loose universal joints are moving which is causing the noise. It occurs at low speeds because of a slight wobble as speed increases the wobble goes away and so does the noise. It's best to change the font and back at the same time you can find them at your local part store starting at $19.99 each. As for your front end lubricate it real good. Hope this was helpful.

Have a 1997 Mountaineer a the front makes this loud squeaking sound when turning/running over speed bumps or any time front suspension is working


It can be bushings in the front sway rods or the control arms. The tie-rod ends or even ball-joint sockets can make noise if they are dry.

Alright whos been speeding whilst going over the speed humps ,what you have is a classic case of speed hump syndrome ,by going too fast over them you have damaged the antiroll bar connection stays or connecting rods ,look on the suspension and from the antiroll bar to the suspension leg is a short link bar with a ball joint on each end and these i am sure you will find are damaged as this is a common syndrome i am getting over the last couple of years with the increased use of the sleeping policeman to reduce the speed of traffic

Severe squeaking noise coming from the undercarraige....shocks? bushings?


Both the shocks and bushings can cause the squeaking noise. It is very common in those vehicles, and the best bet for figuring out which one is this: put some brake fluid in a squirt bottle, and put a small amount(don't get overzealous with it, as it will remove paint) on all the rubber bushings, and drive it around a little to get it worked into the joints. Brake fluid is designed to work as a lubricant in brakes without degrading the rubber parts, so it is excellent in lubricating the rubber suspension parts. If your squeaking remains, then it is probably the shock. This diagnosis, of course depends on if the squeak is that really obnoxious rubber squeak noise that comes when you push down on the front end and make the suspension travel. If the squeak is the high-pitched one that is constant when driving, and doesn't change except with speed, then it is your brakes telling you that they need new pads.

Sometimes the bushings will squeak when put under load like a speed bump that is normal. But if you hear the same squeak while driving in other conditions you might want to check your outer tie end rod.

Suburban front tire squeek


squeaks in the front end can be any one of the suspension components....however with gm trucks it has been my experience that its probably a ball joint.........GET IT CHECKED!!!!!!!.......if the ball joint breaks the wheel will flop in the wheel well and can cause severe damage to your other suspension components as well as body damage.(can be very expensive) if you are traveling at a fast speed you may lose control and possibly crash! But most of the time a bad ball joint will break when you are going into a driveway or parking lot.
hope this helps........Good Luck!
