Squeak PLEASE HELP!!

Hi Guys

Really hope someone can help me, I have got this annoying squeak at my front wheel.

Please see video attached, note that the squeak can be reproduced from hitting anywhere, the tire, bottom of the C, top of the ball joint and on the brake caliper. The wetness you see is me that sprayed some silicone spray.
Nothing is leaking on knocking. The squeak is not speed related but bump related so you can imagine how insane it drives me as it squeaks even on a normal road. Can only hear if window is down. On the trail it goes bonkers.

Everything looks 100% not visible damage or cracks anywhere. Do I just live with it for now as nothing seems like it failing?

Thanks for any help that can be offered.

Is your Jeep on a jack in this vid?
My lower shock bolts are the source of all my squeaks, and need continual re-torquing to the PROPER setting.

You may need a 2nd pair of hands, while you turn your ears in the direction of the noise and see if you can pin point exactly where it's coming from. It could be a lot of things, typically bushings related or lack of torque on bolts/nuts.

Why'd the mouse sleep under an oil can?














So it wouldn't squeak in the morning.........

just get under there and tighten all the bolts on the suspension. look for signs where a bolt head might be moving ever so slightly. betting one is loose somewhere.
