Need help to locate wishbone problem

Hi all,

My suspension is creaking like h...!
Would like to try to stop it until I can have upper and lower wishbones changed.

Found this on

"If you have a very intense squeaking from the front suspension only when
you turn the steering wheel, then here is a possible solution for you:
Try to have some silicon grease on the rubber seal (on ball joint) that is
located between the upper wishbone and the vertical strut/vertical bar."

Could someone locate this for me on a picture or drawing?

and this?

"One tip is to check the lower wishbones. They are a bit expensive but it's
possible to squirt a little oil with a medic needle inside the rubber that
covers the wishbones connection point."

just checking, but are your symptoms as described on ie when you turn the wheel, or is the squeaking from going over significant bumps?

cos if it's the latter then it's (ALMOST certainly) your upper arm bushes....

and if it helps, they're talking about the balljoint covers on the end of the wishbones!
