Why Does the Front End of My Car Squeak Only When I Hit a Bump?

Answer

The front end of the car could be squeaking when you hit a bump from a multitude of things. You could try to check the grease fittings, and the suspension bushings and make sure they are lubed up. It could also be a ball joint, rod end, or the spring seat for the coil.

1 Additional Answer
If the front end of a car is squeaking when hitting bumps, then you need to check all of the bumper and fender bolts and the hood to tighten everything down. If the front end of a car is squeaking even on level road or whenever you push on the rear or front fenders, it could be a number of things such as upper strut mounts, body bushings, sway bar end links, or steering rack mounts. If you are uncomfortable with doing the work yourself, it is suggested that you take the vehicle to a trusted mechanic.
