Icon5 Left front noise

I have a 2000 Extended cab 4x4, 3.0 Ranger. I just got the truck and had to replace the sway bar to A-arm links. The left side link had the bolt head sheared off. The left shock had the top bolt mushroomed and almost sheared. After replacing links and shocks I have a very loud squeak when I turn the wheels or drive over even the smallest bump. I am not a mechanic so here I am. Any thoughts? I also get the noise if I push the front of the truck up and down by hand. Thanks.....Paul

Mines doing the same thing. As far as I can tell its the spot where the sway bar connects to the frame.

I just had the same problem with mine, ended up being the lower ball joint.
I replaced shocks and greased everything nothing helped. Was a pain but a $30 fix.
