Does it only happen when going over bumps? If so, it's something to do with the shock. Mine do it too since I put on my new suspension. I believe it has something to do with them not being seeded 100% perfect, but I don't think it's anything to be concerned with.

More or less just an annoyance.

And anyone can correct me if I'm wrong. But I've put on probably 2k miles with mine squeeking. Nothing serious.

it happens not only when i go over bumps but when i drive reguralry as well. when the car is moving it makes the noise and i think its either the wheel bearings or the shocks im not exacly sure but i just wanna remove the noise so its not there anymore. also it makes a very high squeacking noise when i turn right.

Sounds like something with the shocks to me.. But that's just a guess.

When my wheel bearing went bad it didn't squeek. It was more of a low pitched hum.
