[DML] Re: FRONT END creeking noise

Hi Daniel,

I had the same issue with my good car a little while back. Both my 
upper and lower ball joints just needed to be lubricated. I suspect 
that the upper joint might often get missed by some lube shops that 
don't know there's a fitting on the top of the upper control arm. The 
ball joint gets excercised when you either turn the wheel or when the 
suspension is jostled.

My low mileage car might not have ever really seen any lubrication of 
these ball joints. You might have a similar scenario.
