Could be anything... Squeak is pretty ambiguous symptom... can you be more specific or imitate the sound for us?

Could be Bad shocks... or need a lube job!

Cars haven't been designed to get "lube jobs" for about 30 years now.

Your car is still under warranty--ask dealer to fix the problem. Squeeks are NOT normal.

It may be a damaged or torn upper ball joint sealing boot on upper control arm. If this is the case, the joint needs to be replaced.

I agree this sounds like a joint issue instead of Airmatic. But in my opinion it could also be the lower ball joint. I've had the lower ones replaced from two W211 cars where none of the upper control arm joints needed service (although other cars have had the latter).
