Suspension squeak

Hey guys! I have a crazy squeak coming from the left front of my 96 GT. Last night i was rounding a right-hander and i caught a mean pothole with the LF. By the time i got home, i could hear this noise while turning in the parking lot. I'm thinking tie rod(?) Anyway, I'm working on getting a video uploaded which depicts the noise under the car quite well. Standby...

I've attached pictures of the tie rods with the wheels pointed straight. Does the LF appear to be bent or look a bit weird, or is it just an awkward flex in the dust boot. As i said, this happened last night. Haven't had a chance to pull anything apart.

Sounds to me like something rubber is rubbing on setting else. I would get a friend to turn the steering wheel for you while you look for anything that might be making contact

I'm having this issue now. And last night while replacing the brakes I decided to take a closer look. I'm 99% sure it's my control arm bumper. No, not the bushing the bumper. It's basically just a piece of rubber that cushions your suspension. Mine is quite dry rotted. I just ordered new ones today at O'Riely's for $12.99. Cheaper than bushings. I'd check them out and see if that may be your issue too.
