Re: nissan primera squeeky noise from front suspension
I had the same problem. It cast me lot money in changing few things but finally found. The side where the noise comes from look fro the supension arm it is connecting the main suspensionto the body. You have to change that or find silicon oil and spray around the bushes of the arm.

could be a worn belt , or alternator pulley, waterpump pulley, dirt road grime, etc., check your BELTS to make sure they are ok, not chewed up, worn, loose , replace if necessary, keep an eye on it. don't worry about it,
It sounds to be a Constant Velocity Joint (CV JOINT)...You can look under the car at the ft.axles nd inspect the cv joint rubber boots...Normally they will split from wear or road debree and through the grease out making the bearings go bad...However some will go bad without the boot being torn...If that is the case it is best to replace the whole axle when determining which side it is.....Hope this helps..Check all components for looseness ...You really need to put it on a lift and check it.......Metalpoet
Not really. You just have to use common sense. If the original part did not fix the problem, or the problem came back, it should of had a warranty on it. There is no such thing as a running in time on a suspension part. Maybe they aren't replacing the problem part, and you need something else?
nissan primera in the US is called an Infiniti G20. the grinding or knocking if its coming from the front, is gonna be the tension rod bushings are warn out. get new tension rods for real cheap. thats all i can help with, suspension is my thing, motor is not.
I have a 2000 Honda Prelude SH with about 110k on it. I have been having all sorts of squeaks from the suspension over the past 1 or 2 years. It was the front ball joints that were found to be causing the noise. I also had an upper control arm and a tie rod end that was squeaking. The reason for the squeak is the sealed design of the ball joints and the fact that they cannot be lubed, and eventually just wear out. I could get it to make the noise by pushing the car up and down at the affected corner. I've been disappointed in the way the suspension on this Prelude hasn't really held up well. I've never had so many suspension components wear out on any of my cars before. But, your issue definitely sounds like ball joints to me. Those are the same symptoms I was having.
