Hey Bernard, could be a problem with the bushings that go on top. Best to get an honest mechanic to look at it. You may just need to replace that and not your shocks. Hope this helps. Good luck.

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.
