2005 ford explorer front end noise.

I have a 2005 ford explorer xlt and I have a very annoing sqeeking noise from the front end anytime it's going up and down. The odd thing is it only makes the noise when it's not raining out.

My 2000 XLT Explorer makes a 'knocking' noise somewhere in the front end which speeds up as I accelerate. It is loudest at about 50-60km/h and gets quieter from there up... I changed both wheel...

It could be the CV joint on your front drive shaft. I don't feel that it would be your front differential because if that was going bad you would have one heck of a noise no matter how fast you were going. Hopefully this helps you out a little or at least gives you another place to look if you already have not checked.

My 2005 Honda Accord V6 Coupe front end sqeeks loudly.

The only other thing really around to squeek would be the control arm bushings. The start and stop portion may mean you should look into the engine/transmission mounts.
