Q: Noisy left wheel area when driving over a bump

asked by on

When I'm driving the car and hit some bumps, the car would start making squeaking noise. It seems to be coming from the area around left wheel. What could be making the noise?

The suspension system uses rubber bushings and dampers to soften the blow when a vehicle is riding through a rough surface. These components may be worn or in need of lubrication. Have an experienced technician, like one from YourMechanic inspect all suspension components.
