Sadly the people that make cars now a days dont believe in grease fittings you may have to replace it with a after market brand with a fitting

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.

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 .

Jeep Cherokee - Sqeaking Undercarriage


If the "sqeak" is more pronoused while going over bumps, then it is most likely a bushing in the front end. Check your fuel tank straps also, they may be loose. Sounds like this are always a pain to locate. Make sure nothing is in the back cargo area. You can also take your foot and shake the exhaust, WHILE THE CAR IS COOLED OFF OF COURSE.
You can also push down on each corner of the vehicle in the front and stand on the rear bumper to try to simulate or isolate the noise. That's all I have for ya. Good luck.

I have a sqeaking noise from the front end. We thought it may be a u-joint, but the service center checked it out and could not find it. U-joints all checked out OK. Located in WI. The colder it gets, the...


Even if the joints appear to be OK, often they run dry and are rusted inside. Unfortunately you cannot see that unless you remove the axle and visually check them out.
You have universal joints in there? I thought they began using c/v joints right around 2000. Check that the brake pad sensors are not hitting the rotors as well that can make a squeaking noise.Before taking anything apart, try to determine which side the noise is on.
