    Havent looked into it at all but as I was pulling into my garage I noticed a squeaking comming from my front left side. It squeaks when I turn the steering wheel but only when I turn it to the left.

    Any ideas?

    I have the same thing happening, except i think mine is a lot worse. Mine suspension front suspension squeaks when i hit any sort of bump, and it squeaks when i turn the wheel any way. Its very annoying, especially if im driving around in some sort of park and all people here is this squeaky car. :-[

    Its your steering joint(like a balljoint, but its not a ball)... if you were to take your wheel off, and then look under the whole hub assembly youll see a Grease zerg (grease nipple) just pop your grease gun on it and give it a squirt or two, should take care of it... I did mine, but over greased and popped the boot off, so i have to do it every other week or so till i change the boots, also check those boots and make sure theyre not broken and such

    i heard that specific squeak means the car is dieing and that you should give it to me...

    dunno about the validity of that but i would like to believe its true :)

    Youre also correct RGS, it means to let the car get parted out among the white car owners...
