When driving over slightly bumpy road the front end is very squeaky. The suspension is very tight and there is no drift or pull when driving down the road. But is does look like all the so-called sealed bearings are flat and dry looking. None of the boots are cracked. Any ideas?

There are many moving parts to the suspension which any of them can squeak. It sounds like it could be the sway bar but you will need to jack it up and look for rust colored dust which is an indication of the squeak.

I took the car to the shop and they replaced the lower control arm bushings and now the noise is gone, I found this video to help others see what needed to be done. Cost me $350.00
