I have a persistent squeak. I have change every bushing and mount in the front suspension. This leave sme with the bilstien shocks. Can the shock itself squeak? It only really happens when it is really hot. When it get loud you can hear it when you push down on the strut tower.

Get a mechanics stethescope - about $15 at an auto parts store. Have someone repeatedly push down over and over while you move the tip from the top of the shock to the bottom as the first two checks, then to other suspects after that. guarantee you'll find it faster than we will!!

Sway bar link,. Sway bar bushings, spring rubber seat torn and spring is metal on metal?

If you really think about it, when you push down on the suspension, there's a lot of moving parts in play.
