I have a 2000 Sonoma SLE extended cab 2wd with the 4.3L and auto trans . It has 161,000 miles on it and about 2 weeks ago it started making a high pitched squeak from the drivers front area . I checked the whole suspension and everything looked good . I even sprayed Lithium lubricant spray on all the rubber bushings but no help . Seems to come from the drivers control arms area . Not sure what to try now , I bought it new and always maintained it since new .
