Hello everyone!

I am a new 2006 300 4TR AWD owner and after about 3000kms of ownership I have a front right wheel bearing on the way out as well as a sudden case of the squeaks in the front end. It sounds like ball joints though I am not entirely certain.

I am coming from 2 Eagle Talons (back to back) so I am not afraid of getting my hands dirty, however it is pretty cold up here this time of year so I am thinking of heading into the shop.

What I would like to as you guys is this:
Where can I buy the parts at a reasonable rate, and what parts would you recommend?
I am located in the Toronto, Ontario area.

Thanks a bunch fellas!
:newbie:

I was just quoted $278 for the wheel bearing from NAPA... A little more than I anticipated.
They said they don't have the ball joints for the AWD though.

Try looking for Moog parts. They have many single parts like the ball joints. I was asked like 1500$ to change a ball joint because they "had to buy a whole suspension kit".

Creaking? It may be that the Anti Sway Bar bushes may be greasing. Do you have uprated bushes?

I would say the same as Steve get the anti roll bar bushes greased first

I can close this thread now. The control arm was replaced, which held a new ball joint, and the squeaks stopped.
