Squeaks and creaks heard while driving over bumps and turning can be caused be a couple common sources and should be carefully diagnosed. Possible weld issues on the lower control arms can cause the noise concerns and require repair kits for the lower control arms from Ford. A jounce bumper (bump stop) rubbing against dry strut plate can cause an abrasion noise from the strut area. In this case the strut assembly should be disassembled to lubricate the jounce bumper and then reinstalled.

    I have taken it to two shops and they both say it's lower control arms. I will go to auto parts store for replacement and see if that does the trick

  • Mine sounds like a creaking sound whenever I push on the gas or when I stop, and if I turn or go over bumps.

    Creaking and squeaking at low speeds and turns. I've had this problem for the last 20k miles (1.5 years), but now it's getting worse. Driving with the noise is annoying, but now I'm embarrassed to turn into the driveway; the car sounds like it has 500k miles on it. I used to pull both wheels off and spray all the bushings with white lithium grease and that would help for about 3 months; now nothing helps except when it rains, it goes away for a few days.

    I have a grinding rubbing sound coming from the rear driver's side wheel area. Can I still drive the car -- would it be safe? Should I have it towed to the dealer? I have such low mileage and take very good care of my Milan -- I can't understand what could be causing this!

  • Squeak and popping when driving straight, turning or going over bumps I had it to the shop 3 times and they said that. They tightened 3 bolts and sprayed grease it worked for a little bit but now squeak is back and worse. Very embarrassing to drive it and no one in the family wants to ride with me because of the embarrassment

    Squeak and cracking going down the road. Been to 2 shops and can't find out what it is. It sounds like my car is going to fall apart.
