Default Upgrade suspension???

So i have a 2007 Ram 1500 and whenever my suspension contract (i.e. going over a bump) it makes a squeaking noise. It just started recently. Do i already have to replace my suspension?? Shocks and springs??

Any information

Shocks would help dampen the axle movement and would probably help with the squeak, but where is it coming from, front/rear? Springs won't need replacing unless it's starting to sag.

You probably just need to lube everything up. Suspension/chassis joints/parts can dry out and start to squeak. Just get under there and re grease and re lube everything.
