SOURCE: 1998 Chrysler Cirrus loud front end squeaking

well could be a dried out lower ball joint or just the upper strutsare dried out and need some oil sprayed on them to soften up the rubbers .but I would say it is more likely to be the lower ball joint needs replacing

SOURCE: Squeak in front end

Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that side....so start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.

SOURCE: Loud grinding noise from front end

You can see the brake disc on the front wheels, Check both sides of each side, looking for scoring. Brake pads have wear insicators on them that are metal tabs that contact the rotor (disc) when pads get thin. It would be better to pull the wheels off to get a good look at the pads. Good luck

Dry Joint or Bushing--Will have to be checked by good front end shop or good lube shop with drive on rack or pit to duplicate and locate.

My camaro squeaks really loud whenever i turn the steering the wheel left or right whether I'm moving or sitting still. It sounds like it's coming from both sides of the front end.


tie rod ends dry? this kind of thing is easily found if one person moves the wheel and the other listens and/or feels the different front end components. loud squeaks are generally accompanied by vibration which is hard to miss if you get down close to it.

Right side squeaks when turning left and can be made to squeak by pushing up and down. it this a sign of something needing to be changed?


Not really - There are quite a few rubber bushings in the front end. When they are dry they will often squeak. It will sometimes help to spray a little silicone lubricant on them but it is just irritating - not dangerous. However, you may want to swing by a tire store and have them do a bounce test for the shocks.

Loud squeaking when front end moves up and down,have replaced shocks and no help,can not narrow down where sound is coming from,any ideas?


You have control arms on both sides bolted to the frame . They pivot on rubber bushings.
Buy a can of spray silicone and soak the bushings.Bounce the truck up and down then spray the rubber bushings again.Do not get the spray on any thing else. Wear safety glasses and dont breath the spray.

Brakes makin nosie


Sounds like a wheel hub assembly is bad without seeing it. Alot of GM vehicles have the ABS wheel speed sensors built into the hub assemblies. Should be able to narrow the noise down by driving the car slightly turn left and right noise should change from loud to soft when turning the wheel. ( if you turn left and noise gets louder hub on right front is noisey.Opposite will occur if left side is bad)
