Cool I've got squeaks all over the place, please help.....

If i turn the wheel either way it squeaks, is it the bushings and what can I do to eliminate it quickly?

When I push up and down on the hood it sqeaks like hell also, is that my springs, shocks or struts? Is there a quick fix to both of these like with a little WD40 or something like that?

I'm heading to the track Friday night and don't want to attract laughs at all the squeaks, haha

Hey, at least you have a good sense of humor about your squeakiness! My car has developed a squeak that pisses me off... It sounds like it's coming from the front left of my car. I suspect something with the suspension because it makes the noise when I go over a bump with the front left tire. A bushing or maybe even my strut acting up? Who knows... I'm not laughing.

I had a nasty squeak in my passenger-side front that turned out to be the outer tie-rod end. SQUEAKED whenever I turned or that front wheel moved up or down. Very annoying. It's sealed in a little rubber boot with no grease fitting. I spotted a little tube of oil with a needle applicator at the auto parts store and bought it. I poked it through the top of the boot and squeezed in some oil thinking that would be a temporary fix until I could get some new tie-rod ends. No more squeak - and that was about a year ago.

Good Luck,

Yep. Common problem. Mine did that, too, on both sides. I replaced them, but I have a theory that they squeek, not because they are bad, but because they are sealed and cannot be lubricated. All of the factory grease gravitates to a low spot over time. Next time mine begin to squeek, I'm thinking about drilling and tapping the back side to accept a grease fitting.
