Suspension Squeeking - any idea where to look?

Hey all... my 2008 335i has recently decided to start squeeking.. the sound comes from what sounds like the right wheel and is definitely worse when making left turns in going up hill... I am lowered on Sonic Tuning coilovers but don't believe them to be the culprit.. I will take it to the stealership as I still have warranty, but not sure if they'll honor it because of the suspension mods.. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Sachin

Have you swap out your front sway bar? sometimes aftermarket swaybar bushing tend to squeek. especially when there are big movement such as left uphill turn.

Are you sure it's not your brakes?

well.. it does it even on level ground at slow speeds, just worse when turning left on an incline..

My guess would be the springs..since i assume the rest of your suspension is completely stock

Does the sound go away after you speed up to more than 15-20 mph? If so, it's the brake pad sensor and there's an SIB for it.
