Ball joints (upper and lower) or sway bar endlinks are the first things I would check. Free play and cracked boots are bad signs. Also give all the bushings a good look, again, cracks and chunks missing are not good things to see.

well i went to take a look this morning, and the squeak has disappeared. i still checked everything out, and i don't see any missing chunks or anything. I really hope that the squeaking doesn't come back.
