1998 Chrysler Sebring front end squeak


It could be a powersteering leak. Sometimes there is a shaft seal under the steering column inside that needs to be greased because f squeaks. The brake problem is from warped rotors, most likely the front since you feel it in the steering wheel.

If you feel the pulsation in the wheel than its the front rotors that are likely warped. If you feel it in the seat than its the rear drums or rotors. If you don't feel it until you push on the brake pedal than it has to be in the brake system. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
