Default squeky front?

One thing I noticed when i first bought my used 98 ranger this year was that it seemed to have a squeky front when driving around. It does it when turning the wheel, going over speed bumps so i'm not sure if it's just because it has a lift and it's an old suspension kit or what? any idea what or how i need to fix this?

check all the joints and bushings. you could need to grease your pivots, or replace worn out ball joints.
Why does everyone think prerunners just jump stuff?

I would say same as above. also another thing can be the sway bar bushings... Normally main culprit in front end squeaks.
