You may need front lower control arms. the bushings brake and than you will get the squeak. very common problem on a sentra. if you have more than 60K on it, check the control arm bushings, where the control arm is attached to the car with 3 same looking bolts, that's where those bushings are.

Need to help me out more,

What kind of squeaking - how fast - turning left or right - how hard.
Does it go away under any special conditions ie wet, hot, cool etc
Applying brakes make a difference
When hitting bumps or speed bumps

Give me a little more

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?


How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

Noise in front end


Sounds like CV joint. Get both front wheels off the ground. start it up and and have someone listen for the source of the noise.

Can a shock mounting make a squeak noise when going through a dip or turning the steering wheel. shocks already tested.


There are a lot of suspension points that can develop a squeak. Look at there: Front strut tower mounts, sway bar rubber mounts(if equipped). If you recently got new tires that may be a little larger than the originals, the tire may hit suspension parts when turning. They can rub against the inner fender well plastic parts as well. Best thing to do first is get a chassis lube. If that fails to resolve the problem, then look deeper into the problem by a good mechanic.

Front end noise


Squeaking CV Axle bearings... Bad CV axles are expected to click but they can also on rare occasions squeak... I know because I had that experience with a 1984 Sentra when doing a U or close turn only. Other parts that could theorically squeak at low speed, and depending on the condition and brake pad material.. would be warped disks or glazed brake pads... but at low turning speed, the CV Axle is more likely.

Front end noise


Hi Wild Bear

No 1....... Check your wheel nuts ! !!!!!!

If OK.....

Is the problem worse on full lock, one way ?

If so, it sounds like the drive shaft CV joint is shot.


If no....

Jack up the front, support car on axle stands.

Spin your front wheels, check the treads, and I should think, you will be able to tell the problem wheel.

Expect it might be in the brake caliper area, something loose and fouling the wheel or rim ?

Check for play too, in your front wheel bearings, by gripping the tyre, top and bottom and pulling, there should be no movement.

Give these things a try, and get back to me.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice thank´s
