What is that noise in my front right wheel well?

I hear a squeaking noise in my right wheel well, almost like someone having sex on a sqeaky bed! lol whenever I got into a pot hole or wheel the car is cold and I just move off and turn the wheels. What do you think it is?

It could be the tire rod or ball joint worn out or lack or lubrication. Check to see if those ball joints and tire rod has a grease nipple. If not u might need to replace it. Bounce the car up and down on the right front side and see i it still squeaks. It could be the shocks.

could also be your mounts.
might need them replaced or you can lube them, but that is only a temp fix.
