When rocking car up and down (like testing shock bounce) can you hear it coming from the upper strut plate?
Probably not recommended by the ASE mechanics but I have used lubricant on the upper strut bearings for some time.Just do not over do it and have it leak on your brakes.

You need to replace the universal/cv joint, that's the bit on the end of the drive shaft that articulates the turn of direction, while still turning the hubs.
It should have a rubber surround, (which no doubt is split), called a gator, which holds all the grease necessary to lubricate the joint.
Prices can vary quite dramatically.
Once replaced, the noise will disappear.

Plz don't forget to rate me good, thanks ;)

is the creaking coming from the front or rear of the vehicle? if its in the front, it could be a bad strut. 2011? the vehicle should be under manuf. warranty. take it into the dealer and they should fix it for free and even put you in rental car if the vehicle has to stay for an extended period of time. make sure you are under 36,000 miles for the manuf. warranty to apply. good luck!

Everytime I turn slowly I hear this creaking sound. The ride is smooth my steering wheel is great. My power steering is capped off. I dont know what the problem could be. I don't hear it right off when I...


I had a similar problem on my 2002 Escape, but it was also creaked when cold. It turned out to be an outer tie rod joint. It may also be a lower ball joint. My creaking would happen when turning the steering wheel even a quarter turn. I reached behind the tire and put my hand on the tie rod while my wife slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could feel the very obvious vibration. Try the other side to see if you can feel the difference. Can you hear it when standing outside the car, and tell which side?

Wheel bearing schedule maintenance


The way to detect a worn hub bearing is to take a turn and note if there is a vibration or increased noise or both when. To determine which side has the worn bearing if the noise is present when you take a left the right side bearing is bad and vise versa. The life span of hub bearings can be from 80,000 miles all the way up to 250,000 miles it usually depends on terrain exposure to moisture during use etc.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Good luck, Allen

Creaking sound while turning steering wheel


There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.
