: Right side strut bar / wheel question (pic)

So every winter my DSM starts to make this weird noise where it sounds like the strut bar is fucked up on the right side, it basically sounds squeaky and cracks every time u turn the wheel right or you go over bumps. I guess anything that makes the car move.
I checked into it and it all goes fine so i greased it up and it works for about a week or two then back again, i just did it earlier today and i have a question. What are these "bushings" called cause they need to be replaced. Thanks in advance

Also I live in south Texas so the coldest it gets is about 45 no snow or anything.

Pretty sure it's your lower control arm ball joint (the straight arm). Mine did the same thing last year in the cold, and once I replaced that arm the noises stopped.
