Q: Noisy frame bushing on the right side

Loud squeak when driving on rough road

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there. The upper and lower control arm or sway bar bushings along with the upper and lower ball joints are all common wear components on the front end causing this noise.. The front end would need to be lifted and the tire removed to inspect the front end for wear to these components and repair or replace the control arms and sway bar bushings as needed. You may need more than one component replaced and only a complete inspection can determine all the components that will need to be replaced. After repairs, then your front end will need to be aligned.
