MY squeak is lower ball joints.

I can't hear yours from here.

I'd get a buddy to lift and bounce the front end while you get your head in there to listen. Even with my poor hearing, I could clearly tell it was coming from the LBJs. It helps to cut the wheels all the way, then turn the engine off, to get your head in there to listen. My wife was not thrilled to be that lifting/bouncing buddy, btw.
