Squeak when turning, can also be made if vehicle is rocked
When turning a squeaking noise is made. It sounds like a zerk is dry. I took it in and they said it has a few dry zerks and I told them I would take care of it not to charge me. the only zerks I can find are on the tie rods and I greased them up a few days ago and no change. where are other grease zerks located on a 98 Mark VIII

Re: squeak when turning, can also be made if vehicle is...
Your luckey to have grease zerks on your tierod ends most newer cars don't have any at all. If there any more they would be on the upper and lower ball joints, and maybe the a-frame bushings, but don't be surprised if you don't find any.

check the front brakes as the warning tab can make a squeaking noise when the brakes may need to be replaced. also if this is a 4x4 it could be a u joint that is making a noise. sometimes a dry tire bead sounds like a squeak or hub cap. just some things to check out.
If it's the same sound while turning or breaking I would suspect it to be the CV joint. If not you likely have 2 issues. Steering pumps tend to make noise when turned all the way to the stops (don't do that). Brakes squeal when the pads need to be replaced or there is grit between the pad and the disk.
It is hard to tell with out more detail as to what makes it squeak. Does it squeak when you hit a bump, or while the vehicle is in motion? To test your struts simply push down on each front corner (above or next to headlight)as to rock the vehicle up and down. Pick a solid part as to not dent it. This is a good way to test your struts. If it goes up in a stiff motion(not rocking) its probably good. If it goes up and down easily and has a lot of play then your struts might need changes. The squeak could also be sway bar bushings as well. If it only squeaks when your in motion it could be your cv axle. If you are still in need please post more detail as to better diagnose the issue.
I would suggest you check your brakes. Jack up & block the vehicle and remove the tire. Keep an eye out for any evidence of worn or rubbing parts. Look between the pads and the disk for rocks (can cause squeaks.) Also check to see if the pads are worn down to the "squeal inindicator" If none of these are the problem, then it's likely you have a bad bearing. Unless you have the correct tools, you will probably have to take it to a pro.
Check your sway bar links, the two bars at each end of the sway bar, connecting to the lower control arms. Sometimes you can spray them with silicone. Most likely have to replace them. Hope this helps. TJ
Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.
If they are wearing down, they may squeak, and some brakes have a
metallic part that will come in contact with the rotor when the wear
gets to a certian point making an awful squeaking sound telling you
that mabe you should change 'em soon, eh
