HELP: Squeaking Wheel

I would appreciate any input on what is going on with my 2014 mustang gt / brembo package. My car currently has 7,500 miles on it.

At about 4,000 miles I lowered it on steeda springs, panhard bar, lower control arms, exhaust, etc. About a 1,000 miles later this squeaking started from my left front tire. Every time the tire rotated it squeaked.

I replaced all four rotors with cross-drilled rotors and new brakepads, the squeaking continued (metal on metal sound - high pitched). I brought my car to ford today and they replaced the front left control arm, the squeaking continues.

It goes away when I apply the brakes. I haven't read or heard about this issue before. Any idea what this can be? Thank you for any suggestions.

You probably didn't grease the bolts and/or the bushings in the control arms enough

Thanks for responding, do you think it could still be the control arm when the noise stops when I apply the brakes?

When you slow down, the front springs compress and the sound goes away. Did you put spring isolators on the springs? The jam nut on the panhard bar could be loose as well.

This sounds mostly like bad wheel bearing. Just because the car is fairly new or low mileage, does not mean a bearing isn't bad.
