Noise coming from front end W201

I have a squeaky noise coming from the right front end of the car when i turn the steering wheel. What could this be? If i turn the steering wheel back and forth, the noise kinda makes the sqeaky door noise but only from the front passanger side.

Try checking your power steering fluid.

This is the classic idler arm bushing system I believe. Search previous posts and you'll find a lot of information. Generally, it is a medium DIY fix.

The most common cause is a bad lower ball joint. The boot splits, grease goes away, rust comes in, and then squEEEEEEak.
