Driver's side loud squeaking noise at any speed. Local mechanic had difficulty finding the problem, but I searched here and this sounds likely, since they have checked out wheel bearings, rotated tires and checked all assemblies for problems, and found nothing wrong. The loud squeaking noise is getting worse.

"Clunky noise coming from front right wheel. Checked the front stabilizer strut control arm and sure enough there was play. Replaced with beefy aftermarket struts and problem solved. Easy at home fix. See you tube for instructional videos.
