Re: 03 Crown Victoria Front End Squeak

I've got the same grinding problem in my '98 CV. Primarily when turning left. Has anyone found out what this might be?

Re: 03 Crown Victoria Front End Squeak

Ball joints (upper).... I took a needle greaser and greased them through the boot. It stopped the squeak. But eventually the car ended up handling like a late model ford truck... (must drive with the casual back and forth motion). As it turns out these OEM ball joints actually get tight before they wear out... ARRGG!! So I'm off to find some greaseable joints. If anybody knows where I find a set for my '97 Grand Marquis please send me a PM.

I too had a similar squeak. Turned out to be front shock mounts. Lubed with silicone grease, never returned. BTW, Don't use petroleum based grease (vaseline, etc.) on black rubber. It will eat them up. On urethane its ok though.

Re: 03 Crown Victoria Front End Squeak

Just thoughts here, sway bar end links, shock mounts, control arm bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, sway bar bushings. Put the car on ramps, block the tires, have someone wiggle the car while laying under it listening for squeaks. It is amazing the parts that can cause squeaks. My F-350 drives me nuts.

Re: 03 Crown Victoria Front End Squeak

The place where I take my 2000 CV LX for oil changes told me that he knew what the problem was and he had a name for it!

It is called "My car is a Ford Crown Vic". LOL.


He said every Crown Vic that comes in has the same problem. He said to put white lithium grease on every joint including all of the rubber bushings since there are NO grease fittings.

Don't use WD40. It will evaporate.


It is aggravating and I am sick and tired of it. Ford should do something about it!!!
