So I have some kind of high pitched squeaking noise from my front right wheel area. The car only does it when it’s warm and it’s a lot more noticeable in sport mode and seems to go away more in tour. That is what makes me think it’s suspension related. When the car is parked, I can go to the front right wheel and if I push hard forward and back on it, I can replicate the squeaking noise only when warm though. It’s also more pronounced in a slow right hand turn. Any ideas?

I know as soon as I take it to the dealer, they will have it sit there for an hour before test driving it and it won’t do it.

Are you sure it isn't coming from the brakes? There's been a lot of threads about the dreaded brake squeak, I took my 2016 to the dealer and they replaced all 4 pads under warranty, solved the problem. They are engaged when parked, which could explain what you are hearing (rubbing?) when you rock the car from the outside. I don't recall any threads discussing suspension issues like this, but perhaps you're the first to bring it up.

Update: Dealer couldn’t replicate the issue. Tried to blame my aftermarket exhaust. I had to tell them this was happening well before the exhaust and then I showed them the video of the noise and that shut them up. They did a brake service but that didn’t do anything.

It’s just so odd. When I put the car in reverse, it’s completely silent going over bumps When I go back into drive, it starts squeaking again. Any ideas on what would cause that phenomenon?

I've included a video I made. This is going over a speedbump. First you will hear the front go over and then you will hear the rear. I am not pressing the brake at any time.

Dude, like I said, there was a TSB on the connecting arms for the front ant-roll bar.

So the bulletin describes a clunking noise whereas this is a high pitched squeak. I can see if they can look at it, but judging from the description it doesn't seem like it.
