Chirp or Squeak Noted From the Front of the Vehicle on Mazda CX-7

A chirping or squeaking noise may be noted from the front of the vehicle when traversing bumps at low speeds. Our technicians tell us this type of noise is generally caused by the front strut mounts which will require replacement.

Replaced the front struts and mounts, both sides (was able to find a "quick strut" that included everything) and the creaking noise still persists. Sway bar bushings are next. So far I've replaced inner and outer tie rod ends, control arms (of course you can't replace just the ball joints!!), sway bar links, and brake pads and rotors. Latest problem is the "helicopter sound" from under the front. It is not the engine as there is no such noise when engine runs under no load, even if revving it. It's only when driving that the "helicopter noise" occurs, and only within a certain RPM range.
A squeaking sound coming from the front passenger side of my 2011 CX-7 as I am driving. I do not notice any obvious bumps that I am driving over. The noise is not constant but it is nerve raking because I cannot figure out where it is coming from. I took the vehicle to the service department at the dealership. They drove it but told me they did not hear the squeak. They told me to bring it back if the sqeaking gets worse.
Squeak in front end when hitting bumps
occasional noise from front end when going over bump or driving slowly. have not had it checked yet as still paying off timing chain replacement. seems to repair anything on this vehicle is expensive.
alot of brake noise when shifting from park to drive and drive to reverse
