Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer
The ball joints are good and well lubed. I sprayed all the rubber gromets on all the suspension's swing arms and tie rods. I can't figure out where the squeak is coming from.
Get someone to move the suspension thru the noise and "feel" the joints a noise is a vibration and should be felt. an overlooked area is the ball joint type concections to the sway bar. a needle adaptor to yuor grease gun and a couple of squirts should fix. very common on camry, honda crv and the like.

SOURCE: Tie Rods?? Ball Joints??
at such low milage i seriously doubt that it is the tie rods unless you have a problem with the vehicle wandering down the road. with loose ball joints you would have a alignment problem as well and you would notice a cupping on the tires which you did not mention. I would start by looking at eithere the strut or strut mounts and or the shock and shock mounts for looseness or cracks. also make sure your tires are not over inflated this would cause the shock of the ruts to be amplified to the frame.

SOURCE: steering loose on 1994 chevy 4x4
check the idler arm and pitman arms
a quik and dirty way to check for play in the front end
is to have an assistant rock the steering wheel back and forth while feel an all the joints in the steering gear for play.
there will likely be more than one loose joint.

A Ball Joint Can Usually Be Replaced Without Removing The Control Arm From The Vehicle. Place The Vehicle On Jack Stands. Remove The Shock Absorber And Install A Spring Compressor on The Coil Spring.Remove The Nut Securing The Ball Joint To The steering Knuckle And Separate The Knuckle And Then Joint. The Ball Joint Should Be Pressed,Riveted,Bolted,Or Screwed Into The Control Arm.A Service Manual Will Give The Details For The Specific Make And Model Vehicle.
