I have a squeaking noise from front when turning wheel side to side. I have been told that it is not the tie rods. The problem is the entire steering rack is moving on the frame and the large bolts need to be tightened. It seems to be a common problem that other owners have experienced from my Mustang club site.
Had the outer tie rod ends replaced. New ends have grease fittings, none on the old ones. Got front end aligned. Total cost: $294.00
Squeaking when turning and going over bumps ...my car has a or xpipe with dumps and I hear it over that
thumping sound under front left wheel. The upper and lower control arms had to be replaced under extended warranty
Horrible front end squeaking when turning wheel or going over bumps. Power steering fluid was muddy brown but not low.
Tie rod snapped for no reason. Snapping was preceded by squealing sound - we thought it was the brakes.
squealing extremely LOUD both left & right turning of the steering wheel...doesn't squeal as much in motion anything over 15 mph...haven't found a fix yet
