Is there a quick fix for a Squeaky front end


i would check top shock mounts a siezed bearing in the mount will make springs judder in there seats also look at upper and lower balljoints and stabilizer mounting rubbers and the drop links.Have the vehicle idling in neutral and the parking brake engaged standing on flat on a level surface as the weight of the vehicle puts load on the suspension its better to find the problem like that.Get someone to turn the steering full lock both ways while you pin point the noise also grab the spring to feel for any vibration as the noise appear

2005 stratus squeaks in front end over bumps and car shakes when slowing from speeds of 35mph and over


The noise would usually be the strut or the control arm bushings. The vibration could also be the component making the noise, or warped brake rotors.

My front end squeaks when i go over bumps


The last thing you should do is blindly throw money at it without a proper diagnosis, to regretfully learn the problem still exists. Squeaks can be as simple as a worn shock mount, belt slippage, weather stripping in need of lubricant. or a myriad of other things that cost far less than a suspension overhaul.

If it is your shocks/struts, look for the outside of the shock cylinder to appear wet/oily. Hydraulic fluid leaks are proof your shocks/struts need replacing (best to replace all 4, but at the very least the front or rears should be replaced in pairs), and putting it off can certainly lead to a domino effect of failed components (fragged ball joints or tie rod ends, shredded bushings, excessive tire wear, etc..)

If you have a reliable mechanic, that's where I would head. However, if you are more of a DIY'er, grab a friend and head out to a vacant lot with some bumps where you can try and reproduce the problem. While one of you drives slowly, CAREFULLY, the other walk along side and try to pinpoint the source of the squeak (front driver side, rear passenger side, engine compartment, trunk, wherever). Note the speed and direction of turn when the squeak(s) appear, forward AND reverse? Does it happen when air temp is cold/hot, all the time? This is valuable info to relay to a mechanic.

The point is, suspension systems can be wildly complex and sensitive (as any BMW owner can testify), or fairly simple (think mid-70's leaf-sprung trucks).

Another factor is how many miles have you logged on your Kia? If you've hit 80k miles or more, this is when you can expect to start replacing many components that have reached the end of their service life.

With a little more info, a more precise diagnosis can be given.

I have taken my 2003 GMC Envoy in to a GM dealer more than 6 times to be repaired for a very loud creaking noise in the front end. When I brake, the creaking noise starts. Or if I go over a bump, the...


My wife drives a 2003 GMC Envoy and has been complaining about this same creaking noise upon breaking or going over speed humps. I researched this topic on the internet high and low and tried everything I read to no avail. I was about to give up and then realized it could be the motor mounts since when you break or go over bumps the engine does have some movement. Sprayed the most interesting looking motor mounts I've ever seen with silicone spray and the noise was gone! My wife has been complaining for years about this noise and now looking back what a simple solution!. By the way my motor mounts where not worn out, the rubber portion of the mount just needed a little lube.

Front end clunking noise going over small bumps


It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.

Squeak from front left wheel...


It could probabely be the brake pads ,some cars have worning light come on and others have this little projection of steel piece working as warning tht the pads needs replacement.
Remove the front wheel andyou will be able to see the brake calipers and the pads.
Good luck.

95 ef ford sedan suspension problem


What was said about the wear of the front end part when the alignment was given? I could be wrong but, I would say, Not likely for the tie rod ends and definately not the shocks for knocking sounds.. It sounds more like bad ball joints poping, although the idler arm and tye rod ends could be worn also .
