Why is my 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 bouncing and squeaking on every bump? Please Help!

Asked by Aug 20, 2015 at 08:43 PM about the Dodge Ram

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 XT is squeaking very badly, I've spent hundreds of dollars
trying to get this problem resolved,  but to avail. I've paid a guy to put new ball joints on it
(Not sure if he did or not) but days after I got it out of the shop, the squeaking started
back again. I can press down on the front end abs it bounce and squeaks. HELP!

Try spraying some WD40 around the moving parts of the front end like lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings any part that moves when vehicle hits a bump.

Shock absorbers are worn out. plunger squeaking when the hit a bump.
