You need to be more specific for me to give you my best answer but I'll try any ways. It would most likely be a ball joint making the clunking noise. It could also be your wheel bearing which is most likely causing the squeaking if the squeaking is only when the car is moving. If it squeaks all the time it would most likely be your serpentine belt. Lift your front driver tire off the ground and wiggle it to see if it has play. If it only has play up and down it's the lower ball joint. It's most likely both the lower ball joint and the wheel bearing. Unfortunately I can't give you more than "most likely" without knowing more.

Squeaking noise and knocking noise coming from front drivers side. No noise when driving in wet conditions. No noise when i reverse and brake either.


I would first check your front half shafts, it seems like they are either worn out or the boots have torn or cracked allowing dirt and moisture to get into the bearings.

Squeaking from wheel area


If you replaced the hub assembly did you make sure to lube your wheel and hub bearings? I would also try to lube that entire side of the car as well. Tie Rod ends can make a squeel as well so just make sure to grease anything in that general area. If it is a clunking noise or a squeeling when you turn it may be your axle shaft installed wrong and those little splines on the end can get rubbed off real fast causing heat and noise problems real fast. If all this checks you may want to look into a possible rack and pinion problem or maybe a steering gear. I would lubricate everything first though. Good Luck!
