Knock & Squeal

Going over bumps I get a knocking noise from the front of my car. Sounds like the passenger side. Also, when turning the wheel while stopped or moving slow I hear a loud squealing. Again seems to be coming from the passenger side. The lower ball joint and outer tie rod are brand new. Does this sound like an inner tie rod issue?

Did you happen to look at the struts in the front? Might be 2 seperate issues.

Hmm... I didn't think of that. Probably makes sense since the knock came a few months after the squeal.

I had a rattle/clunks for a long time on my speed until one day it stopped, I did my brakepads and looked up and saw fluid coming out of the strut. Might be irrelevant but a good idea to get under there and start poking around.

Probably not your issue but one of the hangers on my exhaust moves a bit...let's the very front part of the midpipe tap against the floor of my car. Freaked me out at first because it sounded like a horrible knock. It only does it maybe once every few months. Sounds like its right behind the tranny.
