Hi guys...

My car is definately making some weird noises...
Everytime I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or to the right to make a U-turn, I hear my wheels(tires) scrapping up against something. This never happened before, but after my car slid around a couple of times in the snow, this started to happen.

Also, everytime I go over a speed bump or go over a pothole, I hear sqeaking noises. I'm figuring this is from the shocks or springs. Any input guys?

Chuck

Not too sure about the front wheel problem. You should jack up the car, turn the wheels and check for clearance.

As for the squeak when you go over a bump, is it coming from the rear? If it is, you should check your thrust arm (it's the one that goes parallel with the car from front to rear, it attaches to the bottom of the knuckle) on the rear suspension. I hope I'm not confusing you. Anyway, try spraying both connecting points with WD-40. This is a temporary fix, you'll have to replace it.
