Front end squeak

I have a squeak in the front end of my 2004 TJ, I did a lube but still there. The only time I notice it is going slow like in a parking lot and go over a bump or like a speed bump, if I don't hit a bump then its fine. Thanks

There are so many things this could be and it is very difficult to diagnose over the internet with limited information. Are there any issues with steering accompanying this issue?

Do you have polyurethane bushings or spacers on your Jeep?

But seriously, I just developed a squeak from the rubber bushing on one side of my stock Sway bar. Totally annoying.

I get so many guys who think they have bad shocks because of sway bar noise in parking lots....

The factory uses all rubber bushings and spacers, did you or the previous owner install anything with polyurethane bushings or spacers? Polyurethane is notorious for squeaking.
