My car makes a squeaky noise on the front driver' side every time I go up and down a kerb or going through a bump. Initially I thought it was my suspension but after replacing a new strut and spring the noise is still there. Does anyone have any idea what that noise could be??

About all the advice I can offer on noise concern is to have a trained technician road test the truck with you and listen to the noise. Noises are hard to diagnose in any type of setting much less over this computer keyboard
mcdevito75 here, Plastic expands and contracts with heat and cold, when plastic gets tired these properties weaken, If you can"t replace the cover try to use a little vaseoline jelly or a good penetrating oild WD 40 on it.
Im replying on my phone, sorry if this is short. Its most likely your shocks. You can find out if you stand on your front bumper and jump up and down and see if it makes the same noise. If it does then its your shocks. You can get shocks anywhere. Online would be most recommended. It may take a while to get an aplication for your truck locally. Hope this helps!
the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers
Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.
By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
