Default front suspension squeaking when hitting bumps and when turning wheel at stop

both side of suspension squeak when I hit any bump or change in road level...when car is parked, turning steering wheel will cause a squeak on right side if turn right and when turn left, it's squeak left...best way of describing how it sound like would be a squeaky door...please help

Default You probably need to grease your control arm bushings.

<center><img src="http://www.b2bgreaseguns.com/rimages/533/Ga-001s.jpg"></center><p>Get the following:

1) A grease gun.

2) A tube of Mobil 1 Synthetic grease.

3) A small diameter grease gun injector needle (Pictured).

All you have to do is poke the grease gun needle into the control arm bushing and give a few pumps of grease into each bushing.

Done.

Worked for me. No squeaks in 100K miles.

My tie rod ends squeaked like a rusty gate when I turned the steering wheel at parking lot speeds. That's when I noticed the bushing seals had failed. Give 'em a look.
