Cranking noise in cold weather coming from the bottom of the vehicle
My vehicles make a "cranking" noise in cold weather when driving over a bump, dip, etc. on the road. Is it the chassis/joints/suspension/other and is there some lubrication process that can take care of that in order to make it a smoother, quieter ride?
Could be the ball joints. Most cars have grease fittings on the ball joints and on front steering linkage. Good to keep them greased up.
