My 2003 ram truck has a loud squeaking sound when turning the steering wheel and when I go over a bump. What could it be? The truck only has 55,000 miles on it and is in like new condition.

You could have two diffident problems here.
1st the sound when you turn the steering wheel is most likely a loose or worn power steering pump belt. Check to see if underside of belt has any cracks, if so replace. Most likely at 55k miles it is just loose and needs re-tightened.
The squeak when going over a bump could be: a bad shock absorber, a bad or un-lubricated ball joint, or am "A" arm bushing. Check by having someone stand on front bumper and jump, or push up and down to see if that sound is reproduced.
If your truck is a 4x4, one other problem that could cause the sounds in these condition is a bad CVC joint (Axle joint).

2006 dodge ram front end shakes when hitting a bump at 40 + mph please help?

You have to make somebody to check the struts, or shocks, and also the axles, this situation is very dangerous because if the problem are the terminals or the axles, they can be broke while driving and you will lost control of the steering wheel... completely. I mean, no steering wheel working, on a car running...

I'm in the process of replacing the front struts on my wife's 2000 Lexus ES300. I'm looking for torque values for the three nuts at the top of the strut tower and for the two down the bottom of the strut....

  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Spring seat. Tighten the new upper strut retaining nut to 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm).
  2. Remove the strut from the vise and disassemble the securing nuts and bolt.
  3. Rotate the upper support so the lowest bolt on the support aligns with the projection part of the lower spring.
  1. Install or connect the following:
  2. Strut and tighten the strut to body bolts to 59 ft. lbs. (80 Nm).
  • Strut to the steering knuckle and tighten the bolts to 156 ft. lbs. (211 Nm).
To install:
  1. Install the lower ball joint onto the steering knuckle and tighten nut to 90 ft. lbs. (123 Nm). Install new cotter pin.

96 Saturn SL steering box shot?

Well, it is easy to test the struts. 1st look for oil deposits around the strut tower. 2nd push on the vehicle's bumper or hood, down with your weight. See how many times the vehicle bounces. It shouldn't bounce more than 1 1/2 times anything more than that might need replaced. As for the gear box...I think you got that right...needs replaced.
