Question type: Maintenance & Repair

at low speeds and when braking i have a squealing noise coming from the front left of my
2004 grand prix gt1 i just replaced the strut and the wheel bearing and the brakes are
good i know need the rack & pinion replaced due to a clicking when i turn the wheel and
inner tie rods could the squealing noise be caused by the same thing or am i looking at a
different issue all together

Worn Tie rods will squeal if you are turning the steering wheel. Sounds like you have another issue. I would inspect the brake pads, make sure there is some Anti Squeal lube on the back of the brake pads, the side that contacts the calipers.

the brakes are good and the noise happens even if the wheels are straight i know the inner tie rods are shot im just hoping im not having another issue like the cv or something stupid

James Dupont

the noise doesnt happen when appling pressure to the brakes wheel bearing strut ball joint pads and rotors are all new and greased with lithuim


Are you sure the noise is coming from the front? It certainly sounds like a brake issue to me. I'd check the back brakes. Sometimes its deceiving where the noise is coming from.

A worn, or cold serpentine belt can also make a squealing sound at low speeds.


James,Have you figured it out yet? I'm having the same issue.

James Dupont

I'm pretty sure it's my inner and outer tie rod ends

I have the same noise from my front left..new pads & calipers too..gonna try tire rods
