Squeak in front suspension 2011 Ford F53

Okay - I have searched the internet and tried lubricating every component in the front suspension that I could but I still get a squeak on the drivers side front suspension. I occurs whenever the front ends starts moving up and down. When sitting at a stop if I let the coach roll forward even a few inches and then hit the brakes the front end will dive slightly giving out a squeak. Rough roads are especially annoying. Rattles I expect in an RV but not the squeaks.

Anyone ever experienced something similar?

I have not heard this problem or had it myself but I would suspect perhaps a faulty shock on that side. Easy enough to test. Take the lower shock mount loose and compress the shock, zip tie it that way and then roll your rig like you are at a light and hit the brakes. See if the noise is still there. Or just take it to a Ford dealer to be diagnosed under warranty.

Have you checked the Wheel Liners. If not properly tightened, they will make noise.
