                            They could. It could also be your springs if you have them on your vehicle.

                            ball joints are pressed in and hardly ever squeek..
                            try greasing your front end..it should stop .if that is where the squeek is..

                            I'm on my 4th Ford truck and this is the third one that had squeaky ball joints. Ball joints can squeak on Ford trucks. I know because mine have on every truck but one so far. :)
