My 2008 has made the same noise since day one only mine is in the rear. I think it is the sway bar mounts squeaking.

Turn up the radio.............

Just so you know WD40 isn't a lubricant.. It actually acts as a degreaser.
Also mine doesn't make any squeaky noises... Maybe a trip to the dealer is necessary?

Check the sway bar actuator, and make sure it is not leaking fluid. It is probably not this, but it is an easy thing to check.

I have the exact same issue. I took it to my dealer and described the problem, but they could not replicate it (of course). Now I just turn up the radio.
