I have a high pitched squeak coming from my left front suspension. It squeaks when I turn the wheel when I am stopped and driving. And when I go over bumps or anytime the suspension is compressed and released. It started all the sudden. It still rides the same and steers the same. Anyone had this problem? What could this be? Thanks

Lower ball joint. Turn your wheel all the way to the right, and then have a buddy move the steering wheel back and forth a bit while you feel the lower ball joint. You should be able to 'feel' the squeak's vibrations if thats it. Mine is currently so loud its embarassing anytime I'm driving slow near people. Waiting for warmer weather to replace.
