Today I noticed when I go on an any area where the right front must move up it squeaks. Or if I sit on the right when I get in it squeaks. It will also do it if I rock the car. it doesn't sound like its coming from the spring. It sounds more like it is coming from the tube that goes to the wheel and into the engine (sorry don't Know the name).

check your bushings for the swaybars...the bushings might be old and crusty....it could also be a broken metal piece that holds the bushings for your swaybars...check it...goodluck!

Get under the front of the car, even without raising the car. You will see a "tube" that connects both wheels. Find an angle where you can look at the rubber bushings holding this "tube" to the frame. If they are old and crusty, that is you problem. If you can shake this tube/sway bar you may be able to reproduce the noise (if that is your problem). Of course the ideal situation would be checking the underside of the car on a lift and visualize the whole front end and then start pushing, pulling, shaking, etc.
Good luck!
