Noises problem
1996 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 78000 miles

1996 dodge caravan. When idling there is a squeaking noise from front driver side wheel area when the steering wheel is turned. As the vehicle is driven about 10 miles the noise worsens but goes away completely when accelerating.
so far Ive had the brakes done, both hub bearings done, drivers side tie rod ends, and the sway bar replaced. None of the repairs of eliminated the noise

Do you only hear the noise when turning the wheel? Have the control arm bushings been checked?

The noise is only when turning the wheel whether moving or not

Based on your description, I would say have the control arm bushings checked.

I wonder if it couldn't also be a strut mount bushing.

Are you refering to the strut plate on the top?

It could be. Usually, they cause a clattering or a clunking over bumps.
