Sprinter problems


Sounds like a bad ball joint. Definitely have it checked out!
You can lift the front tire(s) off the ground with a suitable floor jack then take a pry bar and raise up and down on the tire (might need two people for best results). look for play in the ball joints.

Squeaking noise in front end of 2006 Dodge Dakota - both sides


Could be ball joints or lower control arm bushings.
You can try soaking the bushings with wd40 and see if the squeak goes away temporarily.

We have 06 f-150, 60k miles we replaced the upper and lower ball-joints. Do we have to do a front end alignment


you should just because the geometry of the front end has probably changed, and an alignment is much less than those tires.

I replaced my shocks on my 1998 dodge durango and I want to know what else can I do for a smoother ride. I also noticed after replacing the shocks that I hear a squeking noise while driving up front on the...


First, check the ball joints-might be the source of your squeak and could certainly explain the movement of that wheel-if it fails while in service, it can be disasterous, so make sure they are not the reason of your 'looseness'. As for the squeak, if not caused by the ball joints, check bushings especially the sway bar bushings and the upper and lower control arms for damaged or missing rubber. A smooth ride does depend on tight suspension components and your choice of shocks also can affect it-too stiff= harsh ride, too soft=wallowing ride.

Upper ball joint removal


I have a 98 dodge ram 4wd, and i am an auto mechanic. I replaced all 4 ball joints and both axle joints and did my front end alignment in about 4 hours. The ball joints are pressed into the front axle yoke holes. If you have a ball joint press tool (which i used) it works out pretty easily in a decent amount of time. Otherwise if your lucky, you could use a hammer, which is not nearly as easy. Also, sometimes depending on how long and rusted the front end is, you might have to heat up the area a little with a torch.I also recommend using the best ball joints you can afford, because it would **** to have to do it all again after another 10,000-60,000 miles.

2002 Dodge Stratus Squeaks


I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.
