Steering squeaky when turning

99 Gnd. Marquis, when I turn the steering wheel the front squeaks and can be annoying. Any ideas?
thx. Ed

It sounds like it maybe your ball joints. Need to be greased or replaced.


Ball joints and outer tie rod ends on Fords will make a really annoying noise when they need replaced. The noise is to get you to take the car to a mechanic and fix it before something bad happens. Some people will inject grease under the boot to shut it up, but this only covers up the problem and will make you less likely to fix it before it breaks. The noisy part needs to be replaced! Breaking a ball joint or tie rod end while driving can be very exciting, but not in any good way.
