I have a squeaking noise when turning left. Only left for some reason. Sounds to be coming from the passanger side of car. I can also hear it when moving forward slowly for only about 30ft.
The squeak goes away whenever I press the brakes. I also have anti-rattle clips on the pads. I have checked the dust shields and they arent rubbing on anything and I have aluminum rack bushings.
Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

have you lifted up your front end and checked your tire rods and hubs for play?

Possible to get a video of the sound..may help with diagnosis...wheel bearing??

I tried but what ever I used to record didnt pickup the sound. If I do have a bad wheel bearing where would the play be? When holding the wheel at 12 and 6 or at 9 and 3?
Thanks again for your help guys.

Getting the same noise here.. Sounds like an old door creaking.
I forgot where I read up on this but I think a TSB was released to fix this. Haven't tried anything yet since I just pruchased the Cobra.

Update: took a friend advise and pressure washed the rotors and caliper area. He was thinking the squeak could be due to excess brake dust.
It looks like it stopped squeaking for about two days but the noise came back.:shrug:
Anyone have any ideas?

If your thinking it's a brake issue try these:

1. Remove the front rotors and apply brake caliper lube behind the rotors where it touches the hub.
2. Clean and Re-lube the caliper points where they slide.
3. Re-lube the back of the brake pads

Thanks for the info.
I will definitely give that a try.

Does anyone think warped rotors could have to do with the sound I have?
I do not have any pulsing in the steering when braking.
But, I did have a mechanic tell me he saw grooves in my rotors.

Thanks for all the help guys. :beer:
