Squeak from front driver side

Every time i cut the wheel left or if i hit a bump i get a squeaking sound i greased up the steering column and everything i can on the left side it went away for a day or too now its back. Any ideas on what it can be?

High pitch squeak? Metallic squeak?

High pitched it sounds like something needs to be greased kind of squeak , even entering and exiting the car it happens and I'm not a big guy 5'10 160lb , do springs make sounds when they're bad?

But i doubt itd be the springs if it makes the noise when you get out. Try having someone push around on your car while you look and try to find out where its for sure coming from.

Not lowered roads are to ****ty to lower my front. If i push down anywhere on my car it'll squeak on the front driver side i know its not the tire rod ending. Is it possible steering column or rack and pinion ?

Mine has done that since i got the car on my right front even when i shift sometimes i think its the springs because when i lowered it, it seems to happen more frequently i just gave up haha sucks but it could be worse.

Could be the strut or steering rack. Or even just worn rack bushings. It's not likely to be a spring unless your isolaters are toast.

I have Steeda sport springs and I think it only lowers it 1 1/4 inches all around I could wrong ... That is the smallest drop I have heard of.... I did not have a problem hitting or rubbing on anything except huge speed bumps, until I put my chin spoiler on... Now I rub on steep driveway entrances and stuff unless I go in at a huge angle.

Sway bar end links or sway bar bushings. Possibly ball joints. And lest likely A arm bushings.
