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.

SOURCE: Squeak in front end
Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that side....so start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.

SOURCE: Squeak from front left wheel...
Can you describe the squeak?
Does it happen more when you turn a certain direction?
Try just pushing down on the front left of your car and let it bounce up and down, does it squeak?
I would say its probably mounts, there are usually rubber stoppers on shocks, mounts, well just about everything in suspension has a rubber bushing or stopper to reduce noise and rattling, they may squeak from time to time.
Check your shock absorbers for leaks, look for loose bolts on the suspension and steering components. If you think it may be a rubber bushing, you can get a can of dressing for belt squeals and spray down the bushings, this will eliminate the bushings being the problem.
If it is constant, all the time, whenever you drive it. It could be a fan belt or a timing belt (if the front of your engine is on the left side [assuming you have a transversely mounted engine / front wheel drive])
Check the tension on the belt maybe it is loose.
Hope this is helpful to you.
