Question about 1995 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Shaky steering and creaking noise from the front drivers side when I turn

Independent repair shop has told me there is a ripped axel boot (this makes sense to me as the CV joint may have gotten dirty and is causing the steering shake and the slight creaking when I turn) However, where I start getting a bit skeptical is what they told me next. They told me that the noise I am hearing is coming from the differential and the vehicle will need a new transmission. My question, specifically, is:
The Sebring 1996 V6 LXI is a front wheel drive vehicle. Is there even a differential in the front of this vehicle?

Squeaking from driver side front tire


Tie rod ends, ball joint, or Upper strut bearing. An alignment shop would give you an estimate for the repair. You can borrow tools to install the bigger stuff at most Autoparts stores. But for all of these repairs you should get an alignment after replacing any one of these parts.

When turning left or right steering makes a creaking noise mainly from drivers side wheel, also when stationary drivers side makes creaking noise when pushing down on the wing, after the car has cooled...


This sound is coming from your strut. Sometimes they will get water in the seals, or dirt, and they will start creaking exactly as you describe. This isn't a big problem unless you can't live with it, and if this is the case, just replace the strut on that side. When the car bounces when you press on that side, then you need to worry about that strut, but otherwise, it's ok.

The front driver side tire area makes loud clinking and clunking noises when turning sharply and backing up


Sounds like the CV joint is bad. Take a look under the wheel and see if the rubber boot is torn and grease is coming out. Need to take to a repair shop.

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 noise in front end 1997 explorer


Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.

1994 Ford Taurus creaking left front


I think you are right. The strut or strut mount bearings on the top of the strut could be making noise. The shop might try and rip you off with additional repairs for the control arms,control arm bushings, or steering parts. I would take the vehicle to a reliable shop.
