What is this sound? (suspension)

Sound like a toad croaking. I just noticed it coming from the front of the car when I pushed down on one of the fenders. I can't tell if its coming from the middle or the passenger side but its definitely the front end. I drove it around the block and its pretty loud.

Ha! great description. without a doubt it's your ball joint. the easy fix is to cut a tiny slit in the boot & hit it with some WD40. the alternative is to replace the control arm, as the ball joints really aren't servicable. take care.
