Yeah on the driver front side, there is this real bad squeaking and I thought it was my strut but it turns out that it wasn't. I'm trying to figure out where the squeaking is coming from. Like when I press down on the front end it makes the noise. What is it you think?

    A squeaking sound is usually a lower ball joint that has lost lubrication, see if there is wear or a torn rubber boot. The top strut mounts fail usually causing a rattle when driving on rough ground. Your Camry has McPhearson front suspension. look to see if there are rubber noise insulators between the suspension spring and spring perch, this can be the source of an annoying sound as the suspension travels up and down.
