Squeaking sound on drivers side front

I have a 2005 TB 4x4. I have a sqeaking (metal on metal) sound coming from my front left side. It is very noticable when driving a slow speeds on a rough road. It makes the sound when the suspension is traveling up and down due to the bumpy road. At high speeds its gone. I have checked and the ball joints appear to not have any play in them. It almost sounds like its coming from the top of the strut assembly. I have checked and the top perch bolts on the frame mount are tight. Any tips?

Ok, so after reading through the forum, I wasnít able to find any information to this one problem I have with my Envoy. Recently in November, I changed my stock shocks to HD Bilstein Shocks. The ride was great, but recently the ride has become very bad. One of many problems with the envoy. Just last few days, I was cleaning the Envoy and I put some degreaser on the front of the Engine bay. Washed thru and the next day I started to get this noise. It took a while to figure out where it was coming from, Sure enough it was the front. Itís hard to describe unless I have some sound clip. Therefore, this morning I was able to get a small recording. It sounds like its coming from the front shocks. Itís from both sides. These shocks are new and donít have much mileage on them, but is it possible that they are done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The sound bite is me pushing the front of the envoy down several times. Like the other member said when going slow on turns or bumps this happens.

If you are sure about shock(it looks for me) check the Wheel Hub Bearing
Just lift the front of the car and try to push your wheel from outside to inside and just roll it. This should indicate the source of the problem.
If still nothing just take any long piece of metal and try to lift you control arms and observe if any of bushings aren't fine

This might not relate to what you guys are experiencing, but I had a squeak I couldn't figure out for the longest time and after an exhaustive search realized it was the hood stops. As on any vehicle there's two hood stops that rest in depressions in the hood. Over time dirt an rubber get deposited in the depressions and make them squeak like crazy when going slowly over bumpy terrain. I just cleaned them out and lubed them up with a little grease. This might not be what you are experiencing, but you might as well check the easy things before a repair shop gets into you
