My suspension is squealing loudly over even small bumps, it's like my tires have dog squeaky toys on them it's insanely loud. I can't identify the squeak's location, but am assuming it's suspension.
Sounds like my car this morning (-4*F). Super squeaky and it didn't get to operating temperature until a mile onto the highway (~3 miles / 10 minutes) - of course, I don't have a block heater.

EDIT: -40*C? Holy Christ.
