Default squeaking when right turn

got squeaks when turning right only at slower speeds ? , replaced inner/outer tie rods, new control arms/ball joints, newer dorman front sway bar with poly bushings, new c/v half shafts, newer Monroe sensatrac struts a couple years ago and poly dogbone bushings a couple years ago, also newer front wheel hubs couple years ago ! only squeaks/creeks when turning right and not hearing it at higher speeds ! I have seen on you tube possibly poly sway bushings causing this, needing some grease?? also im still getting a slight "clunk" from front when driving over small bumps in road? also seen on you tube that the front lower engine mount could cause this?? Im kinda aggravated after replacing all these front end parts and still having noises? car drives awesome with the new parts, but I don't want to ruin or shorten the life of these new parts either! a little clunk I can deal with but the "squeak" is killing me !! LOL thanks for yal's help !! ... Claydoh '03 Pace Car

Finding a squeak can be a royal pain. When you replaced the struts did you also change the strut mounts or did you re-use the old one ? I have changed a few out before because of squeaks and noise due to bad bearing's . As you also commented on bushings which are another possibility. Maybe you can have someone turn the wheel for you while you search. Wish I had a better answer for you. Good luck

Like Jeff stated it is hard to figure out squeaks. I always try jacking up the car and taking a crow bar to attempt to simulate the problem. You changed everything that I was going to say to check The slight clunk on bumps may the intermediate steering shaft. Good luck!
