Aha... Well Bill, it appears that it ONLY happens when I press down precisely on the strut mount area, and it seems to be coming straight from that spot on both sides. Any idea what to do about that? I'm assuming I should've figured out that to test strut mounts for squeaks you simply... well... push down.

EDIT: I am assuming that my first order of business would be to check the torque on the strut mount nuts and make sure they are the proper measurement (18 lb. ft.). Probably also the Bar assembly through-bolts (21 lb. ft.) just to be safe?

Well got it all fixed, replaced the left strut mount, so of COURSE it doesn't squeak anymore, and I'm gonna try some lube on the other today/tonight...

If.. you wanted to be crazy and take the strut out..mark around the bolts.. then pull it out. As for alignment by pulling out fo the top...there'* no need. There isn't enough movement to cause alignment issues.
