Front wheel squeak

Well, just came back from the mechanic and WOW what a difference. I changed the Upper control arm bushings that needed changing since I bought the car 2 years ago.

However, the original problem that I went into him with still exists.

The car squeaks or squeals when both accelerating, breaking and/or driving over bumps slowly.

I asked them to check the bearings but he said they are fine. It sounds like something rotary, because it doesn't squeak when idling.

Have any ideas what next to check ??
