1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: Squeaking Noise Coming From Front Passenger Side Wheel Area

 

Question

Recently i've been hearing a great deal of squeaking noise coming from the front passenger side wheel area of my truck. I pressed down on all four corners of the truck and it only squeaks on the front passenger side. It occurs whenever i hit a bump, and when i turn, or if i'm standing beside it and rock that side of the truck. Any suggestions to what it could be?
Thanks.

    Its going to be a process of elimination. This can/could be caused by a lack of grease in the tie-rod ends or ball joints, control arm bushings, sway bar link ends, shock absorbers...the list goes on.

    Haha nothing beats process of elimination in the cold weather. But Thanks for a starting place Tyreguy, hopefully it is a lack of grease in one of those spots. Thanks again.
