Squeaking sounds

I hear a squeaking sound when I hit bumps, checked exhaust and everything is nice and tight. Would bad shocks make a squeaking sound if they was bad.

I have an 01 GT with the same problem. I'm thinking it's either the shocks or springs. Haven't had much time to look at it though

Control arms is my guess. Does it squeak while turning or just on bumps?

I took it to Midas and they said my shocks and stuff looks pretty good, think I might take it somewhere else and see what they say

Imo its the control arms. Fo a simple test. Go to your car put your hands on a fender and bounce the car a couple of times. If its squeaking chances are more than likely its the control arm busings. Do both if your gonna do them.

Sometimes they just push on it to see the shocks. I jumped on mine somewhat to find mine lol. I dont recommend u to jump on yours lol but what i meant was i had the door open and i stood on the door step and jumped up and down

Its always good to get another opinion from another shop see what the other one tells u plus is it from the front or rear the squeak

I have the same problem and its most likely the control arm bushing. That's what I've narrowed it down to because I replaced shocks and it still does it. However the side it's making the noises from the exhaust hits the axle on big bumps.

My vote is for control arm bushings. My fox body used to squeak all the time until I either replaced them or sprayed them with lubricant all the time lol

I have a 2000 GT, all 99-04 mustangs are known to make that annoying sqeaking sound once it's been driven for some years. I replaced the shocks, struts, struct brackets which hold them in place and still sqeaks. I replaced the control arm bushings and a miracle!! No more sqeaks!!! At least not for a couple years anyways. LOL

Squeaking sound was actually a rattling sound, found out it was my clips that hold my brake pads in place was worn out, which was making my brake pads shake when I was hitting bumps
