Squeaking noise when turning rite

Its most likely a dry ball joint or tie rod end. I would have your front suspension greased if it is serviceable, otherwise you should have your ball joints inspected for wear and replace them if they are dry or beyond their service life.

My ford expedition squeaks while driving

If you have a rear drive line shaft (tail shaft) check the u-joints for a rust streak around the cross and cups. They u- joint goes dry and will squeak as the joint goes through the angle of drive. If you have a front shaft as well check it also. If they feel loose and show signs of rust have them replaced specifying joints with a grease nipple. If not that check the suspension rubbers or if you have neoprene or plastic bushes check them also for wear

Front suspension squeak

Hi Mark, Have a look at the ball joints, tie rod ends and rack ends. If these parts are dry or worn they can cause the problem you refer to. If the are fitted with greasing nipples gease them and test. The shock absorbers assembly can also give a similar sound. At the top of the shock absorbers there are parts known as the pads or top mounts. These have a bearing or bush which rotate allowing the wheel to be steered. If they are dry they can also create the noise. Another place to look is at the rubber cushions where the springs are mounted, top and bottom. If there is a drumming sound when driving it would be a good idea to inspect the suspension bushes. If they are worn you may be replacing tyres more frequently than you would if the bushes are replaced. Regards John .

2004 mustang squeaks while driving. stops when car stops. just had brakes done. seems the faster I drive the louder the noise is. I have 42,000 miles on the car.

It's possible that the dust shields on the front wheels may have been bent so they rub on the rotor while they were working on the brakes. It's more likely that you have a U-joint starting to go bad. Factory installed U-joints don't come with grease fittings and they dry out creating a squeaking sound when they turn. This should be checked out in the very near future because it has the potential to create a dangerous situation if it was to break. Make sure that the new ones are greasable. Hope this helps.

Is there any greasing nipples for the GMC envoy slt 2003 ? & If any where are located? squeaking noise at the left front

There are no grease fittings on most of today's cars. The squeaking noise may be coming from a dried out suspension bushing.

Squeaking sound from shock absorbers

ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.

The car makes a squeaking noise when driving

Beyond the issues of dry wheel bearings and CV joints, various points in the suspension (front and rear) have rubber pivot points that get squeaky when moved. Try pushing down on each corner of the car to try to locate the area of the noise. Is it worse on rough roads or smooth? Make sure that all of the lug nuts on the wheels are tight. Lastly, doors, hood, and trunk lid can squeak if they move while driving. Silicon spray lubricant works on all rubber surfaces. Wheel bearing grease works on wheel bearings and CV joints--look for wear and replace any damaged part.

1997 lesabre making strange squeaking noise when turning steering wheel

The only thing that will cause this noise is a worn out or dry running (caused by torn or damaged grease boot) Constand Velocity Joint or CV joint for short. this part is on the front dive axles just behind the wheel.
