Default Weird Squeeking coming from front passenger side suspension.

I own a 2006 Scion tC that has TRD lowering springs put on by the previous owner. Iíve had it for about a year and keep noticing a squeeking coming from the front right passenger side suspension. Almost like something is rubbing up against something else? It sounds almost identical to a metal bed frame squeeking during specific activities if you know what I mean. It happens immediately after start up (only when Iím driving of course) and seems to go away after Iíve been driving for a while. I know literally nothing about suspension systems. What is the first place I should check and how do I check it?

ok. mine squeaks only when it is cold...sounds to be coming from right side near firewall...thought it was the serpentine idler and replaced it (what a biatchhh) still there when cold, not below zero cold, but the cold we experience in the gulf coast region...thinkin it may be the motor mount at the front of the engine now, but also had a thought it was a loose bolt holding the dash on in the upper right location...im gonna pull out my glove box and see if i can find those bolts...ill let you know what i find...

EDIT: almost forgot...this only happens when the car is placed into gear...any gear and brakes applied...and the engine under strain...the squawking begins, then gone immediately upon increasing the rpm...whether driving or just reving the engine...sounds like motor mount to me

EDIT: checked the dash hardware...not the cause...
good hunting
