Generally, the front end components, such as; tie rod ends, ball joints and control arm bushings are now sealed and 'permanently' lubed. This means there are no more lube fittings to periodically grease or lubricate the front suspension.
The squeak noise you hear may be related to a dry / worn suspension bushing. Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to inspect and service the front suspension and bushings.
