Just bought a ford ba wagon and when you do a hard turn like driving in your driveway or turning in a street it makes a loud creaking noise coming for the front


check the strut or top strut bearing for failure
the creaking noise can be from the spring being wound up from turning as the bearing has seized
have it inspected by a specialist suspension shop

My 2002 mitsubishi montero sport is making a creaking sound from the left front side torsion bar. Helpp!


Would look first at condition of bushings. Live in a dry area? Rubber bushings dry rot quickly in Colorado, New Mexico, etc. If you have already isolated it that well, though, then you probably already checked that, so apologies if this tells you nothing new, but there are not that many possibilities for creaking sounds from front suspension. Ball joints usually clunk or pop, and strut/spring mounts seem out of range based on your description.

My 2011 Nissan Sentra makes a slight creaking noise whenever I back out of parking spaces by turning the steering wheel to the extreme right or left. Specifically, the noise comes after I start rolling...


is the creaking coming from the front or rear of the vehicle? if its in the front, it could be a bad strut. 2011? the vehicle should be under manuf. warranty. take it into the dealer and they should fix it for free and even put you in rental car if the vehicle has to stay for an extended period of time. make sure you are under 36,000 miles for the manuf. warranty to apply. good luck!

When i turn the steering wheel to the right get lots of creaking noise coming from the wheel arch (front o/s) Mercedes W215


There are bearings on top of the strut. this is probably your noise. It's not hard to remove the strut, three nuts on top and two bolts on bottom, but you will need a coil spring depressor to remove the bearing plate at the top of the strut.

1996 mustang gt makes a reking noise when turning


There are several possible causes to your problem.

Most likely it is a ball joint.
A bad strut mount will make a similar noise. Sometimes dirt/rust in-between the strut spring and the rubber insulators can cause a creak.
If the environment is really dry or the rubber bushings on the car are really old, they can cause a creaking noise.

I would have it checked out because if it is a ball joint, it will eventually cause uneven tire wear and can even separate, resulting in total loss of control of the vehicle.

2000 Lincoln makes creaking noise when turning right.


You should go to a front-end alignment place and have them check the Balljoints and tierod ends. Some of the front wheel drive cars have Upper strut bearings and Constant Velocity joints.

When you hear the creaking sounds it means the parts are rusty and rubbing together. They are considered "Lubed for Life" and if they are dry and rusty their life is gone.

These parts hold the 2 front wheels together so they both turn with the wheel. The Balljoints hold the weight of the car and are the framework for the wheels.

Poor alignment caused by worn parts will destroy tires early. It is not something to ignore but it is possible only 1 part is bad out of many. It is customary to align the wheels after front end work. Some front wheel drive cars need periodic alignment on the back wheels too. So you can believe this if a shop suggests it.

When turning left or right steering makes a creaking noise mainly from drivers side wheel, also when stationary drivers side makes creaking noise when pushing down on the wing, after the car has cooled...


This sound is coming from your strut. Sometimes they will get water in the seals, or dirt, and they will start creaking exactly as you describe. This isn't a big problem unless you can't live with it, and if this is the case, just replace the strut on that side. When the car bounces when you press on that side, then you need to worry about that strut, but otherwise, it's ok.

1994 Ford Taurus creaking left front


I think you are right. The strut or strut mount bearings on the top of the strut could be making noise. The shop might try and rip you off with additional repairs for the control arms,control arm bushings, or steering parts. I would take the vehicle to a reliable shop.
