Squeak noise in front suspension
 
I have an 04 Ram 1500, the front passenger side has a loud squeak noise whenever I turn or hit bumps, I dont know if its the ball joints or the steering. Does anyone have an idea?

Did you try lubing the joints? There is a fitting on the major joints that you would connect a lube gun to. You can get a lube gun at home depot for 10 bucks made by Lucas Products and a set of 3 lube tubes for 5.95 at the home depot as well.

Yes I lubed the front end, I also looked at all the bushing. But didnt see anything bad.

Hmm, May or may not be the situation but how are your shock absorbers. I have heard some make a squeak when they die. It's a faint squeak though. Do me this...
Turn the truck on and keep it in park. Then turn the wheel to the right and then to the left and tell me if it squeaks. Then on a flat level surface drive slowly and turn right and left and tell me if it squeaks.
