Question about 2000 Honda Prelude
I have a 2000 Honda Prelude SH with about 110k on it. I have been having all sorts of squeaks from the suspension over the past 1 or 2 years. It was the front ball joints that were found to be causing the noise. I also had an upper control arm and a tie rod end that was squeaking. The reason for the squeak is the sealed design of the ball joints and the fact that they cannot be lubed, and eventually just wear out. I could get it to make the noise by pushing the car up and down at the affected corner. I've been disappointed in the way the suspension on this Prelude hasn't really held up well. I've never had so many suspension components wear out on any of my cars before. But, your issue definitely sounds like ball joints to me. Those are the same symptoms I was having.

Could be a few things.
could be aging springs that need a lil oil, or could be loose suspension components, or if you have hit any construction areas where the road is affected, and maybe hit it hard enough, you could have bent something like a subframe connector if your car has one. I had them upgraded on my accord, then bent the hell out of them when the interstate was getting extended and i hit a low to high pavement rise too hard and too fast...
now very squeeky. over speedbumps and all... ugh.
