Sounds Like the Strut needs replaced. Cost $116 to $200 each. The only other thing that would squeak would be the rubber coil spring insulator (might have moved).

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

Rubbing coming from front passenger side tire?


I presume that the tyre you have replaced is with the same specification size as on the either side, If so you need to check if the tyre is rubbing against the mudflaps or the mudguard specially when the side is loaded or the wheel is turned to one side. Lift up the side with a jack, turn the wheel to either side and check if there is enough gap on the sides. If you had replaced the tyre after a burst/puncture, had run the car after this had happened, then the wheel alignment must be looked in specially for the tow in/ out. Check for the wheel position using a thread held against the rear wheel and the front wheel postioned with a slight inner view, check the wheel from the top to bottom with a plumline. You will get some indication if there had been any shift in the chassis or the suspension. press down the side up and down to hear any creaking, if so check on your suspension parts, the lower arm, the roll bars and the strut/ shock absorbers. You have the problem lurking around here. Hope my advice helps you out. Good luck good day

My 93 Pontiac sunbird 3.1 abs, is making some type of rubbing noise almost like that noise you hear when semi trucks wheels contact the pavement. It only makes the noise when I turn left at high speeds....


Check all suspension components on that side, strut, bushings, ball joints, bearings, and definently the CV(constant velocity) joints. Good luck !

yes, it could be, and probably is, to check this, jack the car up, and see if you can wiggle the tire, up and down, or side to side. also, you might want to check your brake pads. hope this helps!!!

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it...


I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. On this side, the bushing is manufactured opposite of the passenger side. The lip is up and causes the two metal pieces to rub. I had to grind down the lip so it would be like the other side. All is better now. I'm not sure if this is where your noise is coming from since it gets louder with speed. I would assume yours is a bearing. Sorry.
