Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

THE FRONT DRIVER'S SIDE SQUEKS VERY LOUD ANY TIME THE VEHICLE GOES OVER A BUMP

The ball joints are good and well lubed. I sprayed all the rubber gromets on all the suspension's swing arms and tie rods. I can't figure out where the squeak is coming from.

Get someone to move the suspension thru the noise and "feel" the joints a noise is a vibration and should be felt. an overlooked area is the ball joint type concections to the sway bar. a needle adaptor to yuor grease gun and a couple of squirts should fix. very common on camry, honda crv and the like.

SOURCE: Tie Rods?? Ball Joints??

at such low milage i seriously doubt that it is the tie rods unless you have a problem with the vehicle wandering down the road. with loose ball joints you would have a alignment problem as well and you would notice a cupping on the tires which you did not mention. I would start by looking at eithere the strut or strut mounts and or the shock and shock mounts for looseness or cracks. also make sure your tires are not over inflated this would cause the shock of the ruts to be amplified to the frame.

SOURCE: steering loose on 1994 chevy 4x4

check the idler arm and pitman arms
a quik and dirty way to check for play in the front end
is to have an assistant rock the steering wheel back and forth while feel an all the joints in the steering gear for play.
there will likely be more than one loose joint.

Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.

Petroleum will rot bushings, you may consider a car wash with and undercarriage sprayer and see if noise goes away. This may indicate a bushing problem if noise goes away. If not, ball joint probably.

How can you tell if my ball joints are going out


While driving down the road, if when you hit a bump, and your car's front end seems to shake or your steering wheel shakes from the bump; that is a good sign to have your ball joints looked at.

What are some of the symptoms that you are experiencing?

Front suspenion. I'm getting a lot of loud creaking when going over bumps and turning corners. I know it's not the C.V. joints. I tried to lube but there are no fitings. Is there a way to lube this...


Dear,

I think the front axles have worned out due to which it makes noise while taking a turn around.

and also get the shockers checked due to which it squeeks while on move.

My front in squeeks an creeks when i hit a low spot or bump. I have had in the shop 3 times> I bought an extended warranty. I am bought ready to give up.


Front end squeaks are usually caused by rubber suspension parts. The most common source are the sway bar bushings. Nest would be the control arm bushings. You can spray the bushings with penetrating oil to see if the squeak stops. This would only be a temporary fix. Do the sway bar bushings first. Spray them down really good, and drive the car for a couple of days. If the squeak goes away, you will know you need to replace the bushings. Do the same thing to the control arm bushings. If you replace any of the bushings, use a high performance neoprene bushing, and use the special lube available before installation. The sway bar bushings will be an easy fix. The control arm bushings will require special equipment, and will need to be done in a shop.

Loud squeaky sound on right side when I drive and if I run over a bump even louder.


Could be your ball joint/tie rod is going bad. This is part of your front end steering on vehicle and should be checked soon.

There's a bunch of rubber to metal connections under your truck. Suspension parts, body mounts, sway bars, etc. See if you can find rubber lubricant in a spray. In the good old days, mechanics would do that for you when you got a lube job. Speaking of lube jobs, your truck does have ball joints. If it doesn't have lube fittings, see if you can get some put in. After nine years, your ball joints could be worn out, too. If you get new ones, try to get ones with lube fitttings.
