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.

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