Default ***SQUEAK SQUEAK*** sway bar? springs? idk

so i have noticed when slowing down and coming to stop that there is like a squeak or a rattle or some sort of clunk sound where my front passenger side tire is.

There are aftermarket springs on the vehicle and i think that might have something to do with it. i just wanted to post this issue and see if anyone has experienced the same thing AND IF SO THEN WHAT DID YOU DO TO GO ABOUT RESOLVING THE SITUATION.


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE GUYS. CHECK OUT MY NEW 370 I GOT IN MAY AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!

I had to replace the sway bar bushes on my aftermarket front bar to solve my "clunk"

I also have to replace a rear bar drop link which had broken, so the rear links can also eventually fail.

Whats your budget? We can help with a few different options depending on the use of the car.


As for the squeaking, could be the springs moving on the strut, or the sway bar rotating on a dry bushing.
