Well if the brakes are good (I'm not convinced) I would look at some of the bushings associated with the front end (control arm, sway bar .etc)

Where are the insert points for front end greasing? hubby has greased it but it is still creaking a squeking pretty bad. he missed some maybe?


creaking usually comes from struts or from bushings on the A-arms. Get struts replaced recently? Could be the isolators (rubber between spring purch and springs) deteriorated. These are usually the prob if it creaks when you turn the wheel. If it creaks when your push on the car up and down - its a bushing. These dry up and crack and/or creak when old.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.

Creaking/friction when I hit a bump?


Still sounding like a bushing, but it also could be related to a strut. I have tried this in the past....jack the car up and ONLY on one side first, use WD-40 and spray each of the bushings well. Leave the upper strut area alone...do your normal driving. If you still have the squek/crunch, etc, spray the upper strut area. A rare ocassion it can be the upper strut mount.

let me know how it goes!

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.
