i think this is the right forum. now the problem with my 94 rodeo is that when i drive and come up to a stop sign. after i come to a complete stop and then give it gas and make a turn, it makes this akward squaking sound. i dont think i can describe it very thoroughly. its loud, and whe i accelerate is squeaks much like a break or something. that is my only thought, cos when i push the breaks this dosent happen, only whne im accelerating from a full or partial stop...and usully only whne i turn. any ideas...im off from work and school thurs so maybe i can take her to a mech. but id like to have an idea of what i could tell them to check out before i go. all help is apperciated, thanks - justin.

Have you replaced the rear bushings on the leaf springs with Poly bushings because if you didn't lube them very well that could cause your problem.

Check your CV joints on your front axel. If you have around 100k that
could be the cause. It would be more of a clunking squeek. It would be
more prevalent the tighter the turn. Also you would hear it even under
light accelaration.

If they can be rebuilt the boots will cost about $45.00 each side. If you need new half-axles your are talking $100.00-150.00 each side for the parts. Labor will cost a few hundred dollars most likely.

You can do it yourself if you have the right tools but its a real pain. If the half-axles need to come out you have to take off the hubs and unbolt the front axle.

You might want to look at some manual hubs as well because on these trucks the cv's are alwars turning which causes them to wear out. With manual hubs the only turn when you have 4X4 locked in.

If this is the problem, CV joints that is. At this point he is screwed.
Rebooting is only effective at the first sign of dryrot or cracking.
The 94 Passport I am buying has two bad boots that need replacing.
I fear I may be too late myself. There is very little lube and although no
noise there seems to be excessive play. It has 115k miles.

If your joints are making the noise you speak of you do not have much
time before something serious could happen.

kinda off subject but dont your rodeo guys have hubs that disengage the front end? I know my KB/LUV has original CV shafts whith 350,000miles. If you dont then i would look into converting to manual lockouts.

Most Isuzus do not have manual hubs.

Also I would like to add that if it is the CV joints the the clunking
squeeking noise would be consistent throughout the turn. It would be
perpetual throughout the turn. If it is just a quick noise then no more it
might be a suspension isuse or shakel as noted above.
