Seeking Help with Suspension Issues

Guys -

Any help trying to identify two noises coming from the suspension of my 750ix would be great.

Noise #1 - When going over bumps while turning, I get a squeaking noise coming from the front suspension. It is most pronounced driving at low speeds in the parking garage at my office. I get noise only, and cannot feel any problem in through the seat or steering wheel.

Noise #2 - When going over a speed bump, the strut absorbs the initial impact compressing nicely; however, as the car continues over the speed bump I experience a type of pop, kind of like the strut initially sticks in the compressed position and then quickly expands on the downside of the speed bump. I get this from both the front and the back struts. I get a pop noise and am able to feel the pop through the seat.

Any suggestions before I start the diagnosis with my dealer. Factory warranty in effect and want to get this sorted before warranty expires.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or help.
