i want to know what u guys think before i take it to somebody so here it goes. my car pulls pretty hard to the right during normal driving and i just got my car aligned last month. also something on the front right side is squeaking whenever i turn...it doesnt matter what direction. im stumped on what it could be...i thought it was the right wheel bearing but that would squeak all the time. what do u guys think??

Have you checked out how the bushings in the front end look?

Tie Rod Ends

Sounds like a tie rod end. I'd consider upgrading to the Steeda bumpsteer kit if it turns out it is the tie rods (replace both when you do the job, of course). Could just need a lube, but a 1.5" drop + noise usually means time to check out the tie rod ends. (How many miles on the car and how long have you had the Eibach's?)

i don't think its the tie rod end because i just had the one on the drivers side replaced ya only one:sadcry: idn't have the money to replace the other one at the time due to being fired from my job. anyway the right tie rod checked out ok. also its not the creakin noice a tie rod makes when they need to be replaced. the car only has 65k and ive only had the eibachs for about 15k. it also makes the sound when im giong straight i don't have to be turning. it kinda sounds like the breaks but i just did them. so i odn't know

Can you walk up to the car and try to push down on the front fender, does it make the noise. My 97 did this for a while I just sprayed some WD40 on the sway bar bushings and it went away. Some of the other could cause a sqeek also. Good luck.

Pull

I'm less concerned by the noise your front end is making than the "hard pull to the right", which usually imdicates pretty bad front end wear, severe alignment problems, or a wheel bearing failing. If the tie rod end is ok, you can still have a steering rack problem - ball joint problem - or a wheel bearing. The recent brake job could have over or under-tightened your wheel bearing, causing a problem. Since this is something that could (if it is the source) result in catastrophic failure, I'd check this pronto.

Noise is noise. Pulling to the right is god tapping you on the shoulder and saying "watch out".
