Hello, I have a squeaking noise that sounds like it's originating from the right frontal wheel of my car. It not only happens when I'm driving but also when I slam the door to the car.
Do you
have the same problem?

Yes, I've jumped on top of the car and I can't really get it to do anything. No play in the tire when it's jacked up, so *I think that eliminated a wheel bearing. All the control arms still have full rubber and show no signs of wear. The tie rod ends have been replaced recently. The only part showing wear is the sway bar.

The shocks have not been replaced since I had the car (5-10,000 miles) and do show signs of wear.

If its a squeak its most likely a dry rubber bushing wheel bearings whenthey go bad dont squeak when slaming the door. If I had the car in my shop I would hook up a chassis ear which has clip on mics so you cqn hear different parts of the car while driving down the road with headphones.
