Default Squeak from drivers front

Ok, I thought my strut mount was what was squeaking but I have replaced it and still has that same noise, it comes and goes.

You don't have to be moving for it to squeak but it will while moving as well.
You have to be turning the wheel for it to squeak though.

Any other thoughts besides the strut mount as it clearly wasn't the case here?

Sounds like a rubber squeak, bushing squeak, but only when turning the steering wheel.

Talking Re: Squeak from drivers front

It's definite a dry bushing, I have found steering knuckles, rack mounts, even grommets where the shaft comes through the fire wall, but only turning left it shouldn't. I would put it up on stands and have 2nd person turn back/forth slow to pin point the joint.Also if it doesn't do it with the weight off put it on ramps and do the same.The lower ball joint is grease type w/ zert,start simple because they get expensive fast, only let someone you trust look at it SOME will replace every thing because they can if they think you will pay.I've had garages tell me ball joints were bad an a brand new car of course a Chrysler product.I have even heard that flushing the system has stopped noises, is the fluid dirty?Maybe this car was made in California there lefty and make a lot of sqeeking noise,just kidding, LOL !
