Right front wheel squeak

Can hear it when going down the road over bumps and when pushing the bumper up and down while at a standstill. Goes away if the wheel is turned hard right and pushed up and down. Ball joint boot is cracked open. Is it likely to be the ball joint? What else makes a squeak in the wheel?

Probably ball joints, how does the boot look for it? Could also be control arm bushings.

Spray some WD40 into the crack on the boot and try bouncing up and down on it again.

I will give you 10:1 odds that it's cracked.

Make that 100:1.
