Sounds like old spring when turning. Had front end checked didn't find anything. Could
wheel bearing cause this problem as some suggest.

Could be any number of things. Wheel bearing, cv axle(if front wheel drive), ball joints, strut and or worn tie rod end. Will have to closely inspect all parts to find the culprit.

sticking caliper slides...look for uneven wear of the disc...(not equal both sides)~


It is the strut bushings on the front in the top or the lower ball joints. The strut bushings will have to be replaced but if it is the ball joints they make a needle fitting you put on a grease gun that you insert into the boot and fill full of grease but before filling with grease squirt it full of penetrating oil. Push up and down on the fenders until squeak goes away. Ford doesn't put grease fitting on their ball joints.
