SOURCE: squeak in front wheels

jump on the corner of the car that the side the noise is coming from then jump off and see how many times it bounces till it stops if it bounces 3 times to well then your front shocks are bad.

SOURCE: Squeak in front end

Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.

SOURCE: struts were replaced but there is still squeaking in front

possible sway bar links, strut bearing plates (they sit on top of the strut), ball joints, tie rod ends. If the you can make it squeek by pushing up and down on the front, have someone do this while trying to narrow where the noise is coming from.

2007 cadillac esclade ext front end squeaking.

well it can still be anything, locating a steering/suspension noise can be hard. Based on what you typed, what first comes to mind is the steering pump is worn out. If it is more of a low whining sound instead of squeaking, its probably the steering pump.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy with 114000 miles and hear a squeaking sound mostly when turning. I think it may be a strut. The tire on that side is wearing out on the outside. It is in the front. I have had it...

i would suspect the front strut mounts, 100,000 or 10 years is about all you can expect if you drive like a little old lady. and one does not replace the mounts without replacing the struts as well. however making sure the thing is lubed, such as at ball joints and tie rod ends should not be ruled out before you replace the mounts and struts. those parts are expensive, are labor intensive and an alignment is in order afterwards. look around for some "quik struts" for your car before you pay for separate struts and mounts. the overall labor is lower and you get new coil springs to boot. you may want to shoot the entire load and do them all the way around. that way one alignment this year instead of another one next year when the rear end starts squeaking.

My Fusion squeaks from the right front end. It is louder and more noticeable when its cold outside. The noise is audible when riding over any bumbs in the road, when turning the steering wheel, and...

Top strut bearing does this - and so do wishbone joints - so try a liberal spray with silicone oil to see if anything improves.

Have the top strut bearings replaced on that side if nothing improves.
