Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
While driving there is a high pitch sound that comes from the front end of vehicle at higher speeds but not all the time...also when turning right it tends to go away but turning left it comes back
I had the same problem - 2005 freestar. High-pitched squealing noise, not all the time. Mostly on right turns - best part I couldn't hear it all the time. The wife heard it every time. NOT brakes, It was the front hub assembly. It has sealed bearings. I bought a new one $220.00, No more noise - now 15 months later its time to spend the $220.00 again - the local O'reilly's has them in stock now - go figure...

Front wheel bearings. We have a 2004 Limited and ended up getting both replaced (at different times) paid for by Ford. We only had 40,000 km on the vehicle at the time and had to fight Ford to cover the cost. The did come through in the end.

The other thing that I can think of, seeing how I own the same year van and have the same problem is the wheel bearings. The reason for this is that we would ocassionally hear noise from the front, but not consistant. Then we were forced to go through water over our tires and it got worse until it dried out as well as is a continuous squeal at 25+ mph.

We have the same problem with our 05 Freestar. Power steering is fine. We replaced the brake pads and now it is making a different sort of squeaking sound....more of a sound that is in tune with the wheels rotating. Hard to explain but it happens after the brake is released like if we are going over a speed bump or turning a corner.
