Did you have the weird squeaky front suspension?

I've had trouble with a squeaking/knocking noise from the front off-side for almost a year now.
The car has been to one dealer countless times who changed a lot of suspension and exhaust parts, broke anything they messed with and were generally useless - they have since lost their Alfa franchise thankfully. They are the ones that also screwed up the tracking and caused all the excess tyre wear.
I've changed to another dealer who are much more helpful - not that they've done anything radical like fixed the problem or anything!
They've changed a few more parts (!) but the squeaking and knocking is still there. Last time they gave it back they said if whatever they'd just done hadn't fixed it they think they know what it must be!! Whatever they had just done hadn't fixed it so it needs to go back again!
If you don't mind I'll mention the explanations you and you b-i-l were given - it might help, you never know...
Interesting though that my, yours and your b-i-l's GTV's have all had similar front end noise and bad inside tyre wear??
