Default 2008 Chrysler Aspen squeek

I have a squeeking noise on my aspen. Everytime i brake and sometimes when i go over dips in the road but not constantly. Not sure if it is brakes or suspension. I opened hood and pushed up and down on each corner and didnt hear anything and on each corner on back and nothing. Does anyone think its more suspension issue or brake issue?

Check the bushings in the front -- definitely a suspension component. If it's the front stabilizer bushings, they're part number 52855534AA, and take about an hour to replace if you have the skid plate.

ray79,

Welcome to the forum.
What is the metrage of your Aspen?
It's quite possible that either the brakes or suspension are worn and causing noise considering the mileage.

Took it in today and suspension checked out good they think brake pads arent great quality ones but still have half pad left and they think rotors were not resurfaced good before. Right now im not really hearing it but im sure it will come back plan to get brakes and rotors done fairly soon. Also it has 122,500 on it.

Oops, I skipped the "every time I brake" part and went right to the "dips in road" part of your original post. I'm glad it's just the pads/rotors and not a suspension issue.

Still not so sure its brakes and rotors. After i got home and turned it off i pushed on each corner and doors back and forth and side to side could hear squeeking.

Still sounds like a suspension issue to me -- see post #2.
