Hey Julia - regardless of which idea I suggested is the problem (provided one of them IS the issue) you shouldn't be looking at a lot. If it's the swaybar end link, I'm betting the part is less than $25 to buy at a parts store, and anyone with a jack and a couple of properly-sized wrenches and/or sockets could change it. I'd think an hour's labor at a shop, tops.

If it's a control arm bushing, you're looking at a little longer time, since it's usually a more labor-intensive job to remove the arms, then remove and replace the bushings, and reinstall the arms. Depending on which arms are affected, you may need an alignment when the job is done, but the mechanic doing the work should tell you this (I'd ask up front anyhow, so you're not unfairly surprised).

One thing you could do would be to put a little engine oil onto the bushings in the wheel well, one set at a time, and go for a drive after you do each one. If you oil a bushing, drive 10 miles or so and still hear the noise, that probably wasn't the one. If you oil one and go for a drive, and the noise is gone under conditions that used to produce the noise, you may well have found which bushing caused the noise in the first place.

I changed front brake pads on my 99 malibu. after six weeks, the driver side started grinding. Took wheel off and found the outer pad worn completely through, inner showed almost no wear at all. ...

The metal squeak tabs go on the bottom when u install them !!! Just make sure when u r putting brake pads on, look at them before u put em in and make sure the tabs are on the bottom and not the top. That will cause them to wear down a lot faster !!!

Play in front wheel

Take a look again at the outer tie rod upon moving the wheel side to side. It it does show play take it in and have it done. You will need a front wheel alignment afterwards if the tie rod is replaced. The cost to have this done can be from $200 to $300 depending where you live

Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on my 07 Saturn Aura because there was a squeaking sound. I took the old pads off and there was plenty of meat left and the rotors look very good. I didnt...

check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.

Squeak and rubbing on lt side drivers side tire can move and squeaks

I'd lean toward bushings of some sort. Inspect the control arm bushings for signs of cracking, and check the sway bar endlink bushings for wear and tear. Both of these parts are going to be worked harder on uneven roads than they will on a smooth freeway, and are likely candidates for causing your problems. A third possibility would be worn strut mounts, but I'd look at the control arm and swaybar bushings first.
