Default Squeaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok, so on a typical take off from a smooth stop to a smooth take of there is this squeaking noise from the front end of my car. I'm the kind of person that likes to have some peace and quiet in the car and this damn squeak is getting on my last nerve. have any of you heard of this problem? i'm leaning toward the front trans mount. it doesn't look bad at all yet i think its making this noise, and its driving me crazy. could this be the culprit? any help would help out immensley

Can you describe the squeaking. Is it momentary or does it continue for a certain amount of time.

If your front mount is bad..it by itself won't squeak..just lift.

Check all your motor mounts.

Gut says it'* your torque axis (passenger side) mount, but I've no data to back that up.

ok, its been a while since i have responded to this question or taken a look at my problem. The other day i was cleaning my rotors up and checking my brake pads. Once everything was peachy keen i put the tire back on and began to tighten the lugs. Now let me specify that this only occurs on the passenger side. When i was tightening the lugs and the tire moved ever so slightly the damn squeak that i hear from a take off happened. Puzzled i tightened another lug nut and the tire moved and the squeaking happened again. I have no idea where its coming from. It sounds like the CV joint but i'm not positive. Any help would be great.

A arm/control arm bushings, sway bar bushings and this type of thing come to mind... I'd be tightening the lugs and listening for the squeak with both ears..
