Front Passenger Side Squeak

Hey guys,
I've had the car for a week now and I've discovered a squeak that's driving me absolutely mad! :bangin:

The creaking / squeaking noise is coming from the passenger side.
It only occurs when braking or accelerating at slow speeds.
Basically when the truck rocks forward or backward.
The noise is not present when putting weight on the fender or when turning the wheels.
I also tried some aggressive slalom driving and it does NOT make the noise.

We've determined it's not from the wheel well at all.
It comes from just behind the front passenger wheel.
From what I can tell, it's coming from the rear lower control arm bushing or the subframe mount.


Has anyone else encountered this or have any other suggestions?
I'll be doing my brakes and springs today, so I'll be in there anyway and will try and grease the bushings.


Thanks for any help.

I have a similar noise on my '15 that is going to the dealer tomorrow. Suggestions were to check bushings and end links like you mentioned. Also that the exhaust isn't loose and knocking against the heat shield or firewall.

Re: Front Passenger Side Squeak

Noise was found.
It turns out someone used metal bracket in the lower right hand corner of the photo to jack up the car.
It was bent and making contact with another piece of metal.

Took it off, hammered it back into shape. Problem fix.
