squeaky shocks?

When driving the past few days there has been a very loud and constant squeaking noise coming from what sounded like underneath my seat. I noticed that when I'm out of the car and I push down on the driver's side front fender, that loud squeaky noise is created from what sounds to be right behind the wheel.

Any hints/help on how I can straighten this out?

PS (86 911 sunroof coupe, no accidents/damage, does not squeak when pushing down on either rear side or passenger side)

Could be numerous things. Suspension bushings, shocks or sway bar bushings. If you want to find it specifically, spray some silicone spray or soapy water on each area and push on the fender again. Have fun....

Sounds like it might be worn bushings, and the squeek is caused from the torsion bar rubbing inside of the A arm. Time for new bushings, they're 18 years old now.
