Default High pitch metal squeak coming from front end.

I have been dealing with this very high pitch squeak coming from my front end. It doesn't change with wheel speed so not a bearing. I hear it most on slightly rough roads when the tires are vibrating rather that full shock dipping motion. I have a two inch leveling kit installed on the front end. Could I be over-extending the front struts? Which are factory.

check your brake dust shields. bend them back a wee bit from the rotor. I had the same type of issue and it was the dust shields.

I had this squeak as well. Turned out my blistein 5100's strut nut wasnt tight. Mine were so loose it clunked as well when I hit bumps. Took back to installer with a torgue spec sheet I found posted on this forum and he had to basically redo the 2-3 hour job at his cost. I believe mechanic used thread lock the second time around

I think there are threads on the blistein 5100 squeak as well. Not sure if its your issue but something to look into.

I would like to know what you find out because I'm having this same exact problem on mine. Only 20000 miles so I find it hard to believe its a strut going bad already
