    wierd squeaking

    As the title says im getting a wierd squeaking sound from my passenger side front wheel area. Last time i heard a similar sound was my struts on my previous car, but, even then at 90,000 miles i had them checked and they were good. My subie only has 42,000 on the clock. Any ideas of what it could be? Usually happens when im going over uneven pavement. Other then that its non existent. Wheel studs are properly tightened to, so i know its not a loose wheel.

    Could be any number of bushings...top hats...

    Could be struts; just because your last car was ok at 90k, doesn't mean another car won't be worn at 42k.

    Could be some other damage from hitting something? My 2012 WRX at 30k miles had a bunch of suspension damage in the rear that caused a bunch of squeaking after I had hit a speed bump too hard.
