    FirstPost - Suspension/Wheel Noise

    Alright, to give some quick history.
    Own a 1998 Z28, first an only owner.
    Car only has 27K miles.
    Have not driven it in a few years due to events out of my control.

    Put the insurance on it recently, took it for a drive and hit a construction pot-hole/bump-in-ground/whatever you want to call it.

    Now the car makes noises from the driver-front wheel area.
    It is a sqeaking-type noise emanating as the car moves, obviously the noise is louder and more noticeble as I accelerate more.

    Nothing appears is wrong with the brake system.

    I am thinking it might be the wheel bearing or ball joints.

    Any suggestions/answers/help would be awesome.

    I mean, I finally get to drive the car again, and now there are issues.

    Also, if any of you agree that it may be the ball joints, any assistance on how you replaced them would help, as I know this will be a pain.

    Before you worry about the ball joints check all the rubber bushings for damage.

    Take the front wheel off and insect all the bushings. Here is a picture of the front end albeit with aftermarket parts but instead of poly bushings and rod ends you will have stock black rubber bushings.

    If they look okay then it could be the ball joints.

    BTW welcome to!
