Squeak coming from Pass Side Wheels on bumps..

Anyone experienced a small squeak that comes from the passenger side wheel well when riding over any sized bumps? Its almost like a cricket sound.. I cant verify if it is coming from the front or rear wheel.. I will try to make a video with the sound later, but it annoys the hell out of me so I ride around with my windows up..

Sorry I can't be of help but mine has been making a similar noise....narrowed it down to passenger rear wheel, clearly suspension related but unsure exactly what.

check your rear shocks and make sure they are mounted firmly. Some members have had issues with shocks getting loose on their own And that could be your problem.

Thanks I will take it to my mechanic and have him check that.. Is it a DIY type of thing?
