Left Front suspension makes a squeaking noise

When I drive very slow I can hear a squeaking/creaking noise coming from the drivers front side. Also when I push up and down on the drivers side/left side of the car I can hear the same squeaking/creaking noise. Whats causing it?

Also, I don't know if it is related. Sometimes when pulling out of my driveway, at the very end of my driveway ( Which Dips down where it meets the road ) I hear what sounds like metal on metal grinding sound.

This ONLY happens when turning left.

I took it to the Lincoln dealer and they said they could not recreate the problem.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check the brakes but this sounds like bad upper and lower a frame bushings.
