LEFT FRONT SUSPENSION MAKES A SQUEAKING NOISE

1997 Lincoln Continental • 168,000 miles

When I drive very slow I can hear a squeaking/creaking noise coming from the drivers front side. Also when I push up and down on the drivers side/left side of the car I can hear the same squeaking/creaking noise. Whats causing it?

Also, I don't know if it is related. Sometimes when pulling out of my driveway, at the very end of my driveway ( Which Dips down where it meets the road ) I hear what sounds like metal on metal grinding sound.

This ONLY happens when turning left.

I took it to the Lincoln dealer and they said they could not recreate the problem.

Check the brakes but this sounds like bad upper and lower a frame bushings.

A frame bushings? Do you mean the control arm bushings?
