Re: front end squeak?
Hi there! Is it a squeak or a groan? I have a bit of a groan in hot weather that I've attributed to a rubber bushing under the jeep (I think it is between a bracket that holds the sway bar but allows for some rotation).

Your best bet is to get under there and listen it out. Might take two people..

Welcome to the forum!!

Well it certainly isn't a "groan" its just a mild squeak like rubbing a fork on a plate. It doesn't do it going down the road only when I but the tire or the front end. I might invest in a torque wrench and go through everything checking for loose bolts.

Wheel bearing?

Re: front end squeak?
If it was the wheel bearing would it make the same sound if the wheel was jacked off the ground spinning freely? Cause it didn't do it when I changed my oil few days ago.

Does the wheel move when pushing it?

Just the tire shakes from the force.
