Help: front end squeak

Iíve replaced the sway bar bushings and ends. Still have a suspension squeak. Where should I look next?

Those squeaks can come from several sources and can be difficult to find without a lot of guesswork sometimes.
I use one of these for finding those annoying squeaks & rattles.
It's got 6 sensors you can clip anywhere on your car.

I'm going to have to add this to my toolbox because there are so many times I wish I had it! My V8 also has a front end squeaks and they happen while not going over bumps.

Sometimes, just driving from a dead stop and turning may cause it. At first I thought it was from rack n pinion but that has been eliminated as mine was rebuilt by the Rack Doctor.

The LCA bushings/LBJs/LCA are still stock but I'll go ahead and see if I can add some grease with a needle point to the LBJs. The UBJ is a greasable unit from SPC as well as the UCA is also greasable from SPC. That leaves the tie rod ends and sway bar end links. I'll see if I can sneak in grease into those boots as well.
