Sounds like the mechanic did not mention you would need a suspension alignment after replacing the tie rods...Most mechanic shops do not offer this service...Tire Barn is $69.95 to inspect, and adjust...Hope this helps.

Take it back to the mechanic that did the work and complain of this to him. That person is liable for his repair work.

I replaced my tierod on the passenger front.there is still some play in the left to right there is also a humming sound at speeds 40+mph. it's coming from the hub bearing or ball joint.


Any wear or play in a bush or rod usually gives a 'knock' or causes vibration, not a humming noise.
If there's play in the steering wheel that may be due to a worn steering rack and pinion.

A worn ball joint can cause a 'crack' noise and depending on the wear, vibration that will be felt through the steering wheel. A worn ball joint can also cause the car to pull to one side.

A humming noise suggests it is either a brake rotor/pad, or a worn driveshaft or wheel bearing.

I had my tierods and rotors replaced on my car and now I hear a rubbing noise in the steering and alot of creaks under the car


There should be NO creaking noises coming from this repair of tie rod ends because they are supposed to be greased before the job can be called complete. There should be NO rubbing noises either from rotor replacement. Possible minute for a short period until the brake pads wear in to fit new rotors, but that shouldn't be noticeable. I would take the vehicle right back to the man that did your repairs and tell him the problem and ask him what he will do about it. From what I remember, OEM ball joints and tie rod ends are manufactured with NO grease fittings in them. They have to be drilled and grease fittings applied so they can be greased for longevity. Find out from your installer on this point. If there is no grease fittings, have them installed and greased. And new rotors normally would call for new brake pads also.

Front end creaking noise


Have your rack and pinion steering unit checked. Here is a very good video that will help you understand rack and pinion. The creaking noise is likely from the grease in the joints that pivot when you turn your wheels.

Loud creaking noise(s) from front wheels when braking.


Well if the brakes are good (I'm not convinced) I would look at some of the bushings associated with the front end (control arm, sway bar .etc)

make sure the wheel hub surfaces are clean and free of rust both in front of and behind the rotors. also check that your rear brake adjusters are working correctly. also check wheel berring, balljoint and tierod ends for play. theres should be no play and berring should spin free of noise.

2000 Lincoln makes creaking noise when turning right.


You should go to a front-end alignment place and have them check the Balljoints and tierod ends. Some of the front wheel drive cars have Upper strut bearings and Constant Velocity joints.

When you hear the creaking sounds it means the parts are rusty and rubbing together. They are considered "Lubed for Life" and if they are dry and rusty their life is gone.

These parts hold the 2 front wheels together so they both turn with the wheel. The Balljoints hold the weight of the car and are the framework for the wheels.

Poor alignment caused by worn parts will destroy tires early. It is not something to ignore but it is possible only 1 part is bad out of many. It is customary to align the wheels after front end work. Some front wheel drive cars need periodic alignment on the back wheels too. So you can believe this if a shop suggests it.

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport. When making a sharp turn to the left I hear a rubbing sound coming from the left front tire area. There is currently a light squealing noise when stopping. Are the two...


Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!
