    Pardon the east coast pun...but I'm leaning towards worn/mis-aligned control arm bushings check front and rear adjusting needs to be done with them under load. spraying with lube usually won't help. does the squeaking seem to lessen the more you drive it during the day?

    Are you able to have some one help you with this? I can make some more suggestions to pinpoint the source(s) of squeak(s), if you want.
