Bad squeaking when turning

I have a 2002 ford escape that squeaks very bad when i turn or go over speed bumps. i think it is the ball joints. just wondering if that sounds right and how much it would cost to fix.

    loud kind of grinding squeak when turning left only. Also occurs when going over speed bumps and whatnot. turning right is completely fine no squeaks at all

Could also be sway bar bushings bushings are about 15-20$ ball joints are about 35-55$ labor for bushings is about 1hr. ball joints 3-4 hrs if 4wd add 1-2 hrs per side.

2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks


My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.

Squeaking sound from shock absorbers


ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.

I get a squeaking noise when i turn the steering wheel right or left. replaced struts, and stablizer link rod on 2001 ford escape


I have a 2002 Escape V6. I had a squeak when turning... even when standing still. It was fairly low mileage: 40,000 miles?
It was the outer tie rod. You could feel it squeak in your hand while someone else turned the steering wheel.
I disconnected the tie rod. I wasn't worn, just squeaky. I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and worked it in. Reassembled and squeak gone.
I bought a replacement tie rod, but never had to put it on. I'm now at 110,000 miles.

how long have you had the car do you no the history? im asking this to elminate the possibility of it being a repairable right off,because in what you describe if the car has been in an accident and the chassis was damaged it may have been put on a straighner machine that pulls the twist out of the chassis this at times does not always bring the car back to original driving condtions therefore making the car steering out by a few degree,s

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.
