Squeaking at low speeds!

I can hear a squeaking at low speeds, especially through neighborhoods. Anyone have any ideas on things I can check??? I have no idea how I can diagnose it unless I have someone outside the car as I drive to better pinpoint the sound.

Is it wheel speed related or engine speed related? Is rhythmic or just over bumps or going around corners?, front of the car or back, We need more information lol

I tried pinpointing. It is not engine related. It is not when applying brakes. It is more pronounced over bumps. I'm assuming something with suspension but it only has 17500 miles on it. Any ideas?

My car does this too, Not 100% sure what it is, But you can hear squeaking at low speeds and then it does another noise when turning at low speeds too...

There was a thread a week or so ago about this. There is a TSB for the LCA squeak. Take it in. They should replace it with a new shielded LCA. The original LCA is "sensitive" to heat and they will start squeaking. Mike started about 3000 miles.

How can I find that TSB so if they try to bs me at the dealership I have something backing up my claim. Mine started at about 15000 but has gotten worse.

can you tell if it's from the front or back? Could be sway bar links in the back?

My stock suspension squeaks like crazy over speed bumps and around tight corners and I have 25k miles. My mom's 3.7 does the same. Kinda just how it is I think

Search "bucko" on the search bar here on ME, he started a thread about the TSBs. The squeaking over speed bumps is there. I have it too; took mine in but they didn't have the replacement so I'm waiting.

You can also search "TSB mustang 2014" in your search engine.

You need to know the rules, to break the rules

For stock, I believe the LCAs now have a heat shield, which helps removing the squeaking... Don't know about aftermarket though lol

Actually, Nevermind... The squeaking from turning and stuff is normal since mine did it before AND after.

The noise at low speeds is actually like a buzzing sound and I believe it comes from the driveshaft.
