    We also have a 1998 Cirrus with a loud front end squeaking while driving. It is most noticeable at slow speeds while turning or going over bumps. The previous forum said it might be a lower ball joint. Is this expensive to replace/repair?

    I had the same problem with ours. I fixed it by getting a flex hose grease gun and filling the upper joints. You'll need the flex hose to get into the area for the grease-sert. After this simple lube job, ours sounds like a new car.

Well could be a dried out lower ball joint or just the upper strutsare dried out and need some oil sprayed on them to soften up the rubbers .but I would say it is more likely to be the lower ball joint needs replacing

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?

How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

My camaro squeaks really loud whenever i turn the steering the wheel left or right whether I'm moving or sitting still. It sounds like it's coming from both sides of the front end.

tie rod ends dry? this kind of thing is easily found if one person moves the wheel and the other listens and/or feels the different front end components. loud squeaks are generally accompanied by vibration which is hard to miss if you get down close to it.

1998 Chrysler Sebring front end squeak

It could be a powersteering leak. Sometimes there is a shaft seal under the steering column inside that needs to be greased because f squeaks. The brake problem is from warped rotors, most likely the front since you feel it in the steering wheel.

Steering is really stiff after replacing power steering pump on 2000 chrysler cirrus??

Is the drive belt adjusted properly. Did you bleed all air from the system after installing the pump? Start the engine and turn the steering wheel from left to right fully 10 times. This will remove any trapped air. Check the fluid level and top it off.
