Front end squeaks

Well this is a little annoying. My 2014 Four Winds 28Z with 3500 miles has a front end suspension squeak that is fairly constant. Seems not to be associated with steering (all four zero fittings are serviced) but rather something like spring attachment points, sway bar components or other. Most small rises or low spots in the road bring it on--you wouldn't notice these small changes in your sedan. Any ideas?

May I suggest checking your shocks and control arms? may be loose.

I like the shocks in particular. Thanks.

Had a squeaking problem a few weeks back on our 2015 Chateau, turned out to be the wheel inserts, rubber mallet around the rim=squeak gone!

My Hurricane did the same and the top shock mounts were so loose - right more than left! Squeak gone now since I tightened them.

I may have to look at that. I have developed a squeak that only shows up when going over parking lot speed bumps or significant dips at road speed. It sounds like rubber on rubber, sort of gives me goose bumps when it happens.
