View Full Version : Front end Noise

09-25-2005, 08:36 AM
It is hard to describe it but when I hit small bumps my front end sounds like it is creaking. I am thinking that it is the struts in need of replacement seeing how I am at the 75000 mark, but I just thought I would check to see if there is anything else?

struts dont normally creak. It could be, but they dont usually make that noise. Maybe a ball joint, or tierod end.

Do you hear this noise when you hit the brake at all?? Iknow my brakes would creak like crazy when i hit the brake. I warrantied the pads, and it seems to have gone away.

i hear it to but only when i go over a bump at a slow speed. i think it is my tierod as well seeing i only have 43k miles so i doubt its my struts.

struts could still be blown, but the noise you speak of sounds like something else.

My car was making that noise a moth ago and it turned out to be one of the tierods. Now it is doing it again so I think the other one is messed up.

I just took my 04 to the dealer for the same thing. They drove it around for about 30 minutes and said they ordered new struts and strut mates.

i know they had a problem a while back. it was the brakes. you need to buy this gm brake fluid and pour it on the piston in your calipers. this fixed it for me...
