Default squeak

1990 Acura Integra 3 dr.There is a squeek coming from the right front
of my car. It goes away a little when I turn to the right. If I jack the
car up then let it down it goes away for about three blocks,also if I
let the car sit for a few days it goes away then comes back after a few
miles. Any ideas? Thanks.

Have the lower balljoints checked out. This is a classic sign of one that
is seizing.

If you delay getting this looked at, you risk...

You just described the other symptom that it had,a pull to the right.

Is this a do it yourself job? Is the balljoint easily accesible? A
friend at a wrecking yard can get me the whole hub assembly for 17.00
would it be easier to just do that?

Are you replying to _my_ message? Can't really tell.

The balljoint is NOT a DIY job as far as removing it from the steering
knuckle goes.

Do not use a steering knuckle from a wreck. It will have the same potential
problem.

Remove your original knuckle from the car, bring it to a garage with a
20 ton press and get them to press in the new balljoint.
