It could also be the struts. Get someone the rock the vehicle if it makes it(most likely will) and while its doing it listen and locate it. That is what I did. First underneath driven up on ramps. But nothing there. The springs in my struts with knocking, I could feel the vibration when I reached over the tire and grabbed them and could feel it. A squeak might be harder. I suspect is that since getting in/out you of course are compressing the side of the suspension.
Good Luck on yours. As it turns out I have to RE & RE my struts and put new rubber jouce at least up top to fix this. I don't have a spring compressor (at least not yet). It really ticks me off since the parts in the TSB are about $10 when I looked at some parts sites include a MOPAR online site in the US but in Canada likely more. I complained to Chrysler (too bad though, there were ok when put back together) even though a known problem but mine just did not fail early enough to get replace with the failed strut. LOL
