I would look elsewhere for the source of the squeak. There are ball joints and rubber grommets which can also squeak. I would especially check the tops and bottoms of the springs, and the pivot points of the control arms.

2006 hyandai sonata, does it have greese fittings


Often mysterious squeaks are from dry torsion bars bushings. There are two of them mounted to the engine "sub frame." My wife's Ford Focus has this issue as well. It squeaks when driving ove rthe curb onto the driveway. The solution is to unbolt the two hold-down clamps that secure the torsion bar to the subframe then apply soime silicone grease inside the rubber bushing so that the rubber will no longer "grab" when the torsion bar moves.

Sounds like it could possibly be the upper or lower control arm bushings squeaking. There may possibly be a grease fitting on the control arm bushings, if so, have them greased. In fact get a complete grease job from a qualified mechanic. If the squeak stops then you know what is wrong. Then make sure you keep your care properly greased. Usually every time you change your oil or at least twice yearly.

Squeaking noise in front end of 2006 Dodge Dakota - both sides


Could be ball joints or lower control arm bushings.
You can try soaking the bushings with wd40 and see if the squeak goes away temporarily.

Front suspension squeak


Hi Mark, Have a look at the ball joints, tie rod ends and rack ends. If these parts are dry or worn they can cause the problem you refer to. If the are fitted with greasing nipples gease them and test. The shock absorbers assembly can also give a similar sound. At the top of the shock absorbers there are parts known as the pads or top mounts. These have a bearing or bush which rotate allowing the wheel to be steered. If they are dry they can also create the noise. Another place to look is at the rubber cushions where the springs are mounted, top and bottom. If there is a drumming sound when driving it would be a good idea to inspect the suspension bushes. If they are worn you may be replacing tyres more frequently than you would if the bushes are replaced. Regards John .

Is this a free service? I have squeaking sound under my Dodge Ram truck. Is it shocks? Bushings? Springs? The Ram is a 1998 with almost 200,000 miles. I have never had the shocks replaced. Maybe i...


Just due to the miles, may be a good idea to replace the shocks.
You may also want to look for grease fittings on the suspension and steering (ball joints, tie rods, U joints, etc.) and grease them all. A squeak is very hard to diagnose over the web. What you may try is have a friend bounce on the bumpers while you listen for the squeak. That may help you narrow its location, front right, front left, rear right, rear left. Could be a bushing in a control arm or leaf spring or a metal to metal squeek.

Squeaking sound from shock absorbers


ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.

Left front suspension squeaking badly on 2000 Ford Explorer XLS. Is there a grease point for the A arms or do I need new struts/shocks?


If the boots are ripped on your lower ball joints you will need to replace them, rain water has washed away the factory lubricant they have no grease fitting from the factory. Replacements will come with grease fittings. Tie rod ends can also be the source of the noise, same deal no factory fittings. VERY COMMON PROBLEM.

On the passenger side of my car the shocks and struts are squeaking. I want to know how to stop this. I have some wd 40 and am ready to spray it somewhere but I don't want to spray it on any parts near the...


The squeaking noise can be coming from alot of different places in the suspention. I would shoot the top the strut where it bolts the the car. The shocks pistons. The base of the spring, Then I would move on the the suspention rubber bushings.

Take car not to spray the rotor or break pads. If you get lubricant on them the pads will be shot.

As for the steering colom try spraying the connector where it bolts to the rack. It will be under the plastic boot.

And white Lithium grease is better than WD40 Get some of that
