I have a weird noise on the right front of car. It is noticeable when I drive over bumps (like the speed bumps on a parking structure). No matter how slow I go over them it seems that the spring squeaks.

Richarjm - by the way the YouTube link that you have does not work. I tried to see it to determine if your problem is similar to mine.

SkyVue2 how would I use the door striker assembly that you mention on your post? Is this related to fixing the noise problem? The noise that I hear seems to come from the front passenger side spring/shock absorber area.

Since you are more north than me, I am pretty sure I know exactly what you are hearing.

It is the squeaking of the bushing on the front sway bar.

It is pretty common on our cars when the temperature drops below a certain level. There are multiple threads on this. I would simply suggest that you check that the rubber is not dried and cracked. If not, don't worry about it. It will go away once spring and warmer temps come back.
