JK Drivers Front Squeak.

So this is my first new thread I have made so please be gentle. I have had a squeak coming from my drivers side front wheel for a few months now. It happens when I go over any bumps at any speed unless I am breaking. When I break over the same bumps the squeak stops or doesn't happen. It doesn't matter the size of the bump it even happens when I drive over the reflectors in the road. I have taken the pads off and checked to see if the shield was touching any where. I have checked the brake pad indicator and looked for obvious signs of scratching on the rotors and regressed the back of the pads. I have verified the tightness of my control arms, shocks, and checked to see the ball joints. My Jeep is a 2016 Hard Rock with only 3200 miles on it. I have a 3.5" Metal Cloak Gamechanger and 35" tires. It has about 6 true off road trips. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

If you have the rubber type hood latches, this may be is the source of the problem...

I have installed Rugged Ridge latches when I had slight squeaking sound, and it stopped the hood flopping as well the squeaking sounds.

Also the side of the windshield adjustments can cause such squeaking sounds, so you would have to try to adjust them in away so they don't squeak..

Hope this helps

Tried the hood latch and verified the tightness of the windshield bolts no change.
