I just started getting this squeeking noise today.

I noticed it when I was pulling back into my parking spot at work. If I turn the wheel all the way to the left, then start to go back right it makes this awful squeek noise......BUT I also get the same noise if I hit bumps or bounce the car on the front right side.

Just last summer I replaced the control arms and tie rods on that side, I was thinking blown shock but didn't think a shock would make noise when the wheels turn?

anybody got any ideas for me?

About 5 months after I replaced all my control arms, the two uppers on the left started squeeking. So I got a grease run with a needle, punctured the rubber boot with the needle and filled it with grease. That was about 30,000 miles ago. Haven't heard a squeek since.

Just wanted to post an update for those in the future who may get a squeek.....

My squeek ended up being my front passenger side, lower rear control arm. My mechanic said it didn't look bad, wasn't loose but just dry and thus causing the squeek. He put in a bunch of grease like mtroxel did and it started to clear up the noise, but to be on the safe side we going to replace it anyway with a new one.
