This could be a number of things like potentially a U-joint or a bearing of some kind. Also, when suspension parts wear out they tend to make squeaking noises like this. I would suggest having a certified expert, like one from YourMechanic, come to your home to diagnose the noise firsthand and help you make an accurate repair.
