    my car creaks in the front! help!

    after I drive my car for more than say, 5 miles, my front passanger side suspension starts creaking really loud. it seems to happen more on hot days, and lately every day has been 100+ degrees. it creaks going over bumps, while braking, and just going through turns. at first I thought it was my shock, but there's no sign of leaking. where to hell is this creak coming from????

    No if it's creaking and popping it means it's time to replace it. I've done them and would rather take it to a mechanic. It's not to hard but it's just time consuming if you don't have all the proper tools.

    You can pick up the Ball Joints for 30 bucks apiece. You should have both sides done at the same time so I'd guess with labor, probally around 150 to 200.
