I have an 05 Nox and rebuilt the whole front end with parts from rockauto.com . I also used the grease needle that fits on my grease gun. I greased the attach points on my lower control arms, lower ball joints and sway bar bushings behind the motor. No squeaks as of yet.

My 2005 equinox is also creaking, in my case apparently from lack of use, 27,000km. Link pins are dried up and when they rub they creak. I've been told it won't hurt to drive, it's just noisy and that replacing them would generally take around 30 minutes each front side, a little longer for the back sides. Parts probably around $30 _$45 each? Thought I'd share.:-)

My 2005 Equinox has been great (knock on wood). It did just start a "squeak" by the tires in the front -- BUT only when I drive under 20mph.. I accelerate and it stops. I have had the CV Joints replaced and the wheel bearings & hubs were just replaced. Could it be the sway bar or joints need greasing? The tires aren't loose. There is no shaking. There is not creaking or grinding.

Im on my new front and rear stabilizer bar linkson my 2009 and 2010 eqinox. Also 3rd set of front wheel bearings on the 2010 equinox. The wheel bearing shields will make a creaking sound as well.

I have a 2008 Equinox that makes rubbing noise when the steering wheel is turned in either direction. It doesn't sound like a squeak, but I suppose it could be strut bushings or other parts in the front end. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
