    Squeak coming from the front.

    It sounds like the squeak is comming from the front right side of the car and only happens on bumps it seems. Some days it wont happen, some days it will. I dont know where to start on what could be wrong? Any idea on what I should look for. It's an 01 TA w/ 32k on it. As far as I know nothing has been done to the suspension. The noise is pretty recent within the past month or so.

    Nice car Eugenio - first car just like mine that I've seen here. Sweet rims and tires on yours too.

    I am having the same front end squeak. Should I just put lithium grease on those fittings or look to replace bushings...?

    omg..you mean someone actually searched for a topic before posting about it? HA!

    My car is doing the same-just like you said, if it's really hot, or has been driven a fair amount of time with lots of turns or stop lights.

    I just solved where my front squeak was coming from. Turns out it was the body panels rubbing, between the front pumper and driver side fender. i folded up printer paper and pushed it between the panels, then drove the car and sure enough the squeak went away. now i need an idea for a more permanent solution.
