Question about Cars & Trucks
It squeaks while driving on a straight road, even worse when im turning a corner.
I would suggest you check your brakes. Jack up & block the vehicle and remove the tire. Keep an eye out for any evidence of worn or rubbing parts. Look between the pads and the disk for rocks (can cause squeaks.) Also check to see if the pads are worn down to the "squeal inindicator" If none of these are the problem, then it's likely you have a bad bearing. Unless you have the correct tools, you will probably have to take it to a pro.

It can be from both the struts and any piece of frame or body that has a rubber mount.(most likely struts and A arms making the noise)

SOURCE: squeak in front wheels
jump on the corner of the car that the side the noise is coming from then jump off and see how many times it bounces till it stops if it bounces 3 times to well then your front shocks are bad.

possible sway bar links, strut bearing plates (they sit on top of the strut), ball joints, tie rod ends. If the you can make it squeek by pushing up and down on the front, have someone do this while trying to narrow where the noise is coming from.

ball joints won't squeak like that; they make a popping noise when they're bad. it is very common for shocks to get water in them and start squeaking, and it's usually a horrible screeching squeak. The only way to get rid of the squeak is to change out the shocks. Hope this helped.
