It also is crooked as the driver side front sits higher then the passenger side front. So the whole truck looks bad right now. Maybe somthing is not sitting right when they installed it.
Get it looked at soon. That sqeak is probably coming from the shock piston rubbing on the bottom of the top shock mount. I ended up replacing both front shocks because the previous shop didn't tighten the piston nuts down all the way, which caused the bottom threads to be worn completely off.
Look at the thread titled "Expensive Lesson Learned". I've got some pics posted of what happens when you let it go too long.
