I had the same issues, especially when slowly getting over the bumps. It turned out to be the upper control arm bushing. I spray the silicone to all the rubber bushings and the noise is gone.

After digging into what the most annoying sound my M5 has ever made, I was convinced it was the lower front control arm... well, I jacked the front of the car up and the wheel had NO play at all...

reached into the spring/ strut area and pulled the little rubber bushing and plastic tube down, sprayed it with silicone lube. SQUEAK IS GONE!

Thank god I didnt go out and just buy parts for it...

Best of luck to everyone and hopefully you'll be able to fix the noise with a few bucks!
So you sprayed above the bump stop and dust cover?

Basically the top of the bump stop and inside the dust cover. The rubber on the bump stop is old and after taking it through the car wash one time, it must have removed oils or something to make it squeak. Iíll admit, this is a cheep fix and not a proper fix. But two weeks laterÖ I still have no squeak or creaking sounds

This is a temporary solution... wouldn't it be easier to replace the spare part with a new one?

Theres a lot to be said for temporary solutions. However much you do or do not buying a little extra time, proving beyond doubt what and where the problem lies is completely invaluable

Well..this temporary solution has been in place for two years .
Eventually it will need to be replaced but visual inspection during tire rotation showed no sign of breaking down so I am fine with it.
