New front struts squeak a lot. How do I stop the noise?

We bought the struts from Auto Zone. The ride is smoother, but now it is squeaking and very noisy! What should I do to stop the noise?

SOURCE: struts were replaced but there is still squeaking in front

possible sway bar links, strut bearing plates (they sit on top of the strut), ball joints, tie rod ends. If the you can make it squeek by pushing up and down on the front, have someone do this while trying to narrow where the noise is coming from.

SOURCE: squeaking noise

This could possibly be the brake wear indicators.
They make a squealing sound when new brakes are needed.

FRONT END SUSPENSION Squeak


It is hard to tell with out more detail as to what makes it squeak. Does it squeak when you hit a bump, or while the vehicle is in motion? To test your struts simply push down on each front corner (above or next to headlight)as to rock the vehicle up and down. Pick a solid part as to not dent it. This is a good way to test your struts. If it goes up in a stiff motion(not rocking) its probably good. If it goes up and down easily and has a lot of play then your struts might need changes. The squeak could also be sway bar bushings as well. If it only squeaks when your in motion it could be your cv axle. If you are still in need please post more detail as to better diagnose the issue.

I replaced my shocks on my 1998 dodge durango and I want to know what else can I do for a smoother ride. I also noticed after replacing the shocks that I hear a squeking noise while driving up front on the...


First, check the ball joints-might be the source of your squeak and could certainly explain the movement of that wheel-if it fails while in service, it can be disasterous, so make sure they are not the reason of your 'looseness'. As for the squeak, if not caused by the ball joints, check bushings especially the sway bar bushings and the upper and lower control arms for damaged or missing rubber. A smooth ride does depend on tight suspension components and your choice of shocks also can affect it-too stiff= harsh ride, too soft=wallowing ride.

Since the ride is still OK, I would hold off on the strut replacement, but I would try some silicon spray for rubber on the suspension rubber parts (and strut assy) and try to stop the squeaking that way. Hope this helps because I would have guessed brake noise before strut noise.

Squeak sound in the front right tire & a thump noise in the rear.


It sounds like you have a bad strut, have the strut replaced, if it does not fix the problem seek help from a suspention shop.
