Vantage suspension squeak

Today I noticed pretty loud squeaking from my suspension just driving on the road. More so when hitting bumps. Can't say I've noticed it before. I think it's coming from the front. Has anyone had this? It's a 9k miles 2013 6MT. Thanks.

I had the same issue on my 2011 with 8k miles which sounded like a rubber duck rolling through the underground. Not sure if it's the same issue but I jacked up the car with the tire fully off the ground and it went away upon lowering. This was completely by fluke that it worked as I was swapping rims.

Sounds like you've got an unhappy bushing or strut. Has the car gotten very dirty? Could have some muck in a tight spot. I'd get it up in the air and put a jack under a tire to get some up and down action to try and locate the actual squeak.

That's a good idea I'll do that.

I'm finally going to look at this on Sunday. I kind of doubt I'll see anything visually that identifies the problem. I hope it's something simple. It's embarrassing, it makes the noise over every little bump, mostly noticeable after I've driven the car for at least 5-10 minutes. It almost sounds like a squeaky bed.
