[Solved] Why Is The Front End Of My Car Squeaking?

Besides brakes squeaking, the most common squeaks are usually associated with your vehicle’s suspension 😁 The squeaking suspension parts are often associated with a lack of lubrication when metal-on-metal wear is happening in connections such as the tie-rods, suspension joints and steering linkage 🙈 If lubrication is the main cause of squeaking it can be an easy and inexpensive fix to take on a DIY project with a grease gun and some spray-on lubricant; or even easier, take your vehicle to an express oil change and preventative maintenance supplier like Jiffy Lube of Southern California 😊 Fixing squeaks with an old fashioned ‘lube-job’ is always less costly than a repair to a tie-rod or a U-joint.

Squeaky suspension systems are not only annoying with their squeaking and grinding sounds, but they can also be dangerous. It is difficult to fix and diagnose. Your vehicle’s weight is supported using coil springs, leaf springs or torsion bars. There is a shock absorber at each wheel, and in many cases an anti-roll or sway bar either in front or back. You will find control arms, struts and steering linkages as well as tie rods or track bars connecting the wheels to your vehicle. There are joints at the ends of each component that can be the cause of noise. You will find three common types of joints in suspension parts. [2]

I’m having horrible squeaking/creaking noises coming from the front drivers side area of my car. It can be heard inside my car, with the windows open or closed. It is not clear if it can be heard from outside. This happens only when you are driving over bumps and uneven roads at slow speeds. If I’m even going like 40mph and there is uneven surface I don’t hear anything. It’s 85 degrees today, and I notice it has gotten worse with the hotter temps. Just bought the car a few months ago when it was still winterIt only seems to have been doing it slowly as the temperature has increased. Strangest thing about this is the fact that it’s making the exact same noise as my 2002 sunfire, although I had never gotten it tested because of the nature of the problem. Head gasket It’s blowing, and I was able to get rid of it. I had kept pushing the button. Front end while it’s parked to see if it makes the noise, but I didn’t hear the slightest chirp, unless I’m just not strong enough to give a good enough push. Do you have any ideas? I don’t wanna throw a whole lot of money into it not being sure what it is, and I’m have readingread a lot of horror stories of mechanics trying to pinpoint noises and still not being able to find the culprit thousands of dollars later.
