    I had a run in with a deer a few weeks back. hit the deer and ran it over with both left side tires. Truck drives fine and I already had the front bumper replaced. Since then the front left suspension squeaks when i so much as get out of the truck. Could something have bent and during the accident. I was going about 35 mph when I hit the deer and it was pretty small. We also just got some colder weather here, could that be a reason for the sqeak? Is there an easy fix? thanks for any help!

    If you had bumper replaced by insurance perhaps they can have someone diagnose it? First thought since this happened on my old truck was front shock, cv's, control arm bushings or it could have gotten dirty/tweaked. Seriously has the areas been washed or was it a PG rated accident. Alignment could also be off if it hit the tire hard enough. Check the rear leaf pack too. It is amazing what a little deer can do.
