Squeky noise.

I hear a squeky noise coming from the front of my car when I drive mostly when hitting bumps. Could it be my shocks?

Maybe, could be numerous things. Worn bushings in the front end components or shocks. See if you can't replicate it and pinpoint where its coming from.

When mine was squeaking it was the tie rod ends. Greased then and it's quite now.

I'm having that same problem, you can't have a badas mustang and squeaking down the road. It's coming from the front right side, I got under and pushed up on the car. It sounds like it's coming from under the spring?

I've had this problem numerous times. First it was the sway bar bushings, then the struts. You have to remember that most of our cars are 14+ years old so now is the time to start replacing some of those old worn out suspension components.

This is what was squeeking, or still is. It's i think the control arm? Not too sure, I sprayed it with WD-40 and still squeaks?

It may be time for new control arms. When WD40 doesn't work, it's time to replace some stuff

OR it could be old spring isolators. Are your springs stock or aftermarket?

Hmmm that's tricky for me bc I am not a mechanic but to me it sounds like springs isolators or struts.

I thought that is the a arm. it does not look like the metal is rubbing.The bushing that the bolt is through looks fine. The spring sits on the a arm. It has a rubber boot that stops it from rubbing metal on metal. The rubber goes bad.

It's hard to think that rubber on metal would make that noise. I guess it's possible though, I'm just ready for it to stop..

If you do it yourself, make sure you measure the inside before removing. I personally spray paint so they screw back in perfectly and do not mess up the alignment.
