i have this f**k squeak in the front drivers side wheel, its pissing me the f**k off.

i have had new upper lower ball joints, new sub axels, bearings, rotors new bendex breaks,
and when you drive along you hear it f**k squeak you hear it loud when you pass a car or a fence.

i jacked it up the front took the wheel off had a sqwiz to see if anything was loose or rubbing and found nothing took the cap of the rotor to see if the bearing was ok seems ok.

and i still cant find out why. GGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRR i hope ford didn’t make this squeak a factory item

possibly struts???? Push down firmly each side of the car and see if this makes that squek-
all else aside-FORD make great cars,unfortunaltly they have bad customer service and most of their products will squeak!!!

You looked at the raduis rod bushes? try some water on them and test drive or you can try silicone spray.

if you greased inside the bearing cap and noise has gone maybe the split pin on the end of your stub axle is or was rubbing on the bearing cap as it was in motion,besides that i would have guessed brake pads!!!

Did you ever figure out what caused this mate? I'm getting exactly the same thing.

Pedders couldn't find what it was. They suggested I get the brakes looked at.

Cheers :)
