i searched steering + squeak....

i can only pinpoint it to the front driver's side. i think to pinpoint it further, i would need to have somebody sitting on the hood while i made a slow turn.... i just replaced ball joints and inner/outer tie rods. the squeak was there before i did that though. only on right turns. aftermarked tc rods as well. i sprayed a bunch of wd40 on my spring, just to see if it quieted things at all and it didn't.... how do i diagnose what it is??

I was gonna say balljoints until i finished reading. I need new ones and mine does this really bad.

Take a look at any spherical joint in your supension, particularly the tension rods. Check them for rust or debris.

no rust on the joint itself. the heim is covered in grease. the threaded end has a bit though....

The threaded end doesn't move so it will be fine with a little corrosion. You will have to get down and look for anything and everything that can possibly move around in the suspension. Don't let anything pass by without inspecting it, even the sway bar links. Check your strut's upper mount for bearing play or rust. There is a lot of moving parts to just pinpoint it over the internet.

it happens to 3 of my cars including a toyota Van, and only happens when i making right turns, but the squeaking sound isn't loud. I've checked everything, couldn't find out why, But here is what i think it might be: 1. PS pump getting old, try flush the fluid, see what happens, 2. check the front driver side shock, take it off and see if it makes squeaking sounds when u compress it, and check the robber ducts cover too, sometimes it stucks in the shock inner shaft. 3. if you're hardcore driver, your car's front subframe might off its position and pushed towards your driver side ( right turns are always sharper than the left turns therefore there were heavier force bad been handled by the frame when you're making right turns).
check all the possiblities above gotta be one of them.
