Front end squeaks

Hello all,

I drive a 89 jeep wrangler with a 4 inch lift kit with 33 in tires. For the last few weeks I've noticed a squeaking noise coming from the front of the car. I thought that maybe it was a bad shock or loose bolt. I even tried spraying different parts with WD40 and it still squeaks. I did notice yesterday that every time I turn the steering wheels I get that squeaking sound. Does anyone know what that could be?? Any help would be appreciated.

switch to spray grease, and keep trying that ^ WD-40 really isn't a very good lube for suspension parts.

It's almost certainly a bushing, but which one is anyone's guess the good news is that lubing the ones that aren't noisy won't hurt anything.
