    I got a stock '01 and today while driving with the windows open, i noticed a squeak coming from the front driver side suspension.

    Its not a big one, but I would really like to get rid of it.

    Also, on a side note, I have the stock suspension (with 95k miles on it). Do I need to recharge my shocks? Where would I go for that? Thanks.

    Subscribed for squeak solution. [EDIT: I've had the same issue for +/- 1 year.]

    Sounds like bushings or a bad shock.

    My 96 squeaks, but both of my front shocks are blown out, and I don't have the $200 for new Bilsteins at the moment. If you've never bought new shocks you might want to look into it and check your bushings for weather cracks or dry rot. Never hurts to upgrade those to some nice poly bushings I've found.

    Any answer on recharging the stock shocks?

    Not possible. They are non-serviceable and would need replaced.
