    they are little nipples on the bottom of the truck where you insert have to have a grease gun to do it...they only cost a few dollars and im sure the people at the auto parts store can show you where some of them are located.

Keep your tires in good lasting shape

Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy with 114000 miles and hear a squeaking sound mostly when turning. I think it may be a strut. The tire on that side is wearing out on the outside. It is in the front. I have had it...

i would suspect the front strut mounts, 100,000 or 10 years is about all you can expect if you drive like a little old lady. and one does not replace the mounts without replacing the struts as well. however making sure the thing is lubed, such as at ball joints and tie rod ends should not be ruled out before you replace the mounts and struts. those parts are expensive, are labor intensive and an alignment is in order afterwards. look around for some "quik struts" for your car before you pay for separate struts and mounts. the overall labor is lower and you get new coil springs to boot. you may want to shoot the entire load and do them all the way around. that way one alignment this year instead of another one next year when the rear end starts squeaking.

Loud squeaking wnen turning and moving. in the

The front passenger tire is wearing vairy hard on the outside tread. Also when I'm turning the vehicle I can hear some grinding and squeaking coming from that side of the axel.

Sounds like tracking does the other tyre have the same problem?

It could also be the bush or trackrod end it is possible that your rubber boot has split and has no more grease inside and you can hear metal against metal.

Its time to take it in tracking first then check the CV joint and all the rubbers for wear if so they need replacing

Squeaking noise

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