Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Squeak from front suspension

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

I have a noise similar to the video ive posted below. Ive sprayed things down with silicone spray and even poked very pin hole in boots and sprayed directly into them. The whole front needs done but i really dont have money to do that right this moment i just want to fix the squeak and then come spring mess with all else. Ive replaced front sway bar bushings but not the links. The bushing were very worn. The noise got better but is still there. Was just wondering if anyone has similar nosies.

Without hearing it, I would venture a guess on the swaybar bushings. They are known to squeak.

I have it narrowed down to passenger side. I jacked pass front wheel up and turned wheel back and forth and noise is gone. So im going to replace upper and lower balljoints on pass side. I was gonna get balljoint press kit. My plan was going to leave upper joint attached and release lower joint snd swing knuckle out of way to do lower balljoint and then reattach it and then do upper one. Can it be done with out taking axle out of hub and undoing everything. Its gotten cold and want to be as quick as possible

If you haven't done this yet, look at new upper A-arms, it will save you time and do not really cost that much more typically.
