Sounds like it is time for some ball joints. There is no way to grease them, and when they start squeaking, it is time for replacement. Do both upper and lower on the side that is squeaking.

I replaced the malfunctioning “thermal actuator” with the “Warn” Vacuum actuator setup, it’s been working great for about 7 years now, simple install, if I remember correctly, it was about $150.
That’s what engages the front diff into 4wd.

SOURCE: upper & lower Ford Ranger ball joints replacement

Approx.$250 in parts & rest is labor. Probably 3 to 4 hrs labor at most, even at 5 hrs labor, that's $100/hr labor. It must include alignment after the repairs, correct? Not sure what your going rate for labor is in your area. Probably wouldn't hurt to call around for a second opinion& estimate just to be sure.

Hello i want to grease the bushes on my 2006 Sebring to stop it from squeaking but I do no no where to look to find bushes . Wanted something to show how to do it and need to see what I am looking for


are you sure its the bushings making the noise? first off you dont grease the bushings. a lot of the squeaking i have seen comes from the ball joints. that generally means they need to be replaced. you need to make a real inspection of the front suspension. none of the parts that come on these cars have grease fittings. usually the upper strut bushings are the first to go. like i said, you need to make an inspection. you may have parts that are failing. this can be dangerous if one fails. there are bushings, 2 each, on both the upper and lower control arms. the lowers are where the arm attaches to the frame. the uppers are attached to the upper strut mount. generally you would replace the complete control arm assemblys

My 98 tacoma squeaks when i turn the wheels


Grease the Ball Joints, three per side (upper control arm, lower control arm, steering tie rod. if there aren't any grease zerks, its time to replace your ball joints. You can do this yourself with the parts from AutoZone or O'Reilly or Napa. I suggest you rent the ball joint tool as it will make your work a lot easier.

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...


General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

How to remove the upper ball joints on a 2001 Ford Explorer Sports track


You will need to jack up the vehicle and also support it by the lower control arms as well as the frame. Remove the front wheels and place them aside.unbolt the upper control arms.....and wedge a pickle fork between the upper balljoint and spindle to knock the upper balljoint loose. Then simply reinstall the new control arms....which have the balljoints in them already.install the balljoint nuts and cotter pins and then reinstall the wheels and lower truck back to the ground.Be sure to drive vehicle to an alignment shop asap so you do not start to eat up your tires. get back to me if you have any more questions...i'm here to help!!!!!
