Squeak coming from left front wheel

Every time I go over a bump even if its the slightest dip in the road I hear a squeaking noise coming from my left front wheel. I thought it might of been the shock not tightened down enough since i replaced them recently but that didn't seem to fix it. Any thoughts?

If the squeak matches the speed of the tire, its most like your hub assembly. Take the tire off and see if there is any play in there.

If its just a quick squeak as the suspension moves it could be shock or spring bushings squeaking a bit. Try shooting them with wd40 real quick and see if it goes away. Doesnt cost but a couple $$$ for a can (should have one around anyway) and if it doesnt help it wont hurt.

Do you still have those dust shields on your front axle? It is possible that one is rubbing slightly on the rotor if its bent in a little.

FYI, I removed those dust shields long ago. They are mud collectors IMHO.

Yeah there still on there. I just sprayed some wd-40 on the bushings for the shocks. The squeaking went away
