    To isolate the squeak you can spray wd-40 or white lithium grease on the bushings. BUT do one at a time and drive after each bushing so that you can isolate what is causing the squeak and replace the worn part.

    ^ what he said. I had an awful metal-on-metal screech from my rear suspension that turned out to be a dried out bushing.

    see a mechanic and ask if you can get a grease job that should stop any squeeks

    Either buy a new bushing and replace it. Or just add grease. Or have a mechanic do it...which is probably better if you don't know what your doing.

    The cold has made my bird squeaky too. I'm pretty sure its the drivers side upper A-arm bushings. Would it be worth it to just replace the bushings or go ahead and replace it with a new aftermarket a-arm?

    Sway bar Bushings and end links IMO..

    You can do the whole car for right at 75 bucks(Prothane endlinks and prothane bushings)

    If it aint that it could be the springs/shocks... but squeaky=bushing to me
