Lots of Squeaking in my front end

Looking for advice on what could be causing all the squeaking in my front suspension. I have a 06 Tacoma double-cab with a 6 inch fabtec lift. It sounds as if the bushing need to be replaced as well as the haft shafts and shocks. Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement bushing kit? Do I need one from Fab-tec or will something else work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I may have found the issue to the front end squeaking. (time will tell) When the hood is open and you bounce the truck you cant hear a thing the second i closed the hood the noise came right back. Couldn't find where anything was scratching until we looked at the hood latch. Paint was being scrapped off the bottom of the hook so my guess is that is was metal to metal noise from the front. After adding some lube i have not heard it in now 24hrs. Im sure when it dries again it will come right back so ill need to figure out a way to adjust it or see if toyota knows how to adjust the latch. Ill be back if it ends up not being the solution.
