Devil Re: Noise from the front end

Hey Amar,
This noise is very normal (or a common quirk) on these vehicles unless you keep all the front end suspension parts under frequent replacement plan.
Most of the time this noise is from very little play in controller arms and in many cases from the steering balljoints.
I wonder if there is a dampner nut/bolt on the steering assembly that can be tightened to adjust the play in the rack and pinion assembly ( I recollect seeing one when I was working in that area on my Vue).

Good Luck,
Another Vue owner

This noise is most probably coming from the front struts, specifically the top plastic spring mounts. Try to lubricate with silicone spray through the openings on top of the strut dome (under the hood). Better stuff might be the T-9 Boeshield parafine lubricant suggested here by one member.

Slow speeds and small bumps.... See the thread I just posted titled "Steering Wheel: Shudder, Loose, Play...Resolution."
