Suspension cold?

Question: This morning while driving around I noticed my suspension was making some noises at low speeds, mainly 5mph or so. Going over bumps it was making loud squeaking sounds, turning my wheel while stopped made some popping sounds. Kinda like an old suspension would sound like. 13 GT, 13k miles, all stock suspension. It's 20 degrees out, any cause for concern?

That's exactly what happens to my GF when the weather is cold. She squeals and squeaks and chatters until the car is warmed up and heater is hot.

Couple weeks ago we had a cold front and it got into the 20's. I didn't notice any unusual noises.

If it's coming from the front end it could be the tie rod ends or bad strut mounts. My 2014 gt was making a squeaking noise at low speeds over bumps. Both of these were replaced at less than 3000 miles on my car

Suspension cold?

1.) You didn't apply enough grease to the joints and bolts

2.) You didn't apply enough grease to the joints and bolts so when the weather gets cold the grease gets less viscous so it's less effective.

I recently bought a '14 GT with 12.5k miles on it and I heard the same thing on the front end when going over speed bumps, etc. brought it to the dealer since its under warranty and they say it's the drivers side control arm.
I don't know if that's really the cause, but I'll know soon enough.

Mine did the same thing, brought it to the dealer and there was a TSB for the control arm bushings. They replaced both control arms and bushings. No problems since.
