Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 ; Year: 1986; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 93135;

One day suddenly a loud, ongoing squeaking noise could be heard whetherwhile driving normally and going over any bumps. When you press down onboth sides of the front of the car, the squeaking is heard. I took it toa Porsche mechanic who lubricated the bushings but the noises returnedthe following day. He doesn't seem to know, or can determine if it is thebushing (control arm?) or the front shocks. He is planning to replace thebushings first. I bring the car back to him for this repair in 3 days andI would very much appreciate your assessment of this condition. (theshocks, although having 93,000 miles on them seem okay and do not bottomout, etc. but shortly before I purchased this car an inspection statedthat the front shocks may need replacement soon.
