    It's a 95 ext cab K1500 z71 and I have a really bad squeak when I turn my wheels or driving down the road if I hit any little bump it squeaks I had someone tell me my rubber bearings were dry and that could be the problem. It sounds like its by my shocks

    From the information that you gave it could be almost anything! there are too many things there to say that it sounds like it is the shocks. A sway bar link is right there, along with wheel bearings and a cv shaft. I would start by looking at shock bushings. It could be swaybar links, sway bar bushings, a wheel bearing, cv shaft issues, front diff issues, front ujoints, the list can go on. I would need a little more info. does it do it when just rolling straight on a flat surface(no bumps)? Does it do it more or less in 4x4? Is it louder when turning in one direction rather than the other? If you bounce on the front bumper does it make the noise? If so have a friend start bouncing the front end, get under there and try to locate where your squeak is originating. Posting a video of the sound may help also.

    Yes it makes noise when someone is jumping on the bumper and also when I turn to the right I think it could be the control arm and maybe the ball bearings

    Your squeek could be any of the rubber bushings, another posinility is dirt and debris between the leaf springs.
