2004 Ford Explorer sounds like a squeaky mattress

My college uses a 2004 Ford Explorer as a security vehicle which they allow a student work study student to drive around patrolling. My roommate drives it and when i’ve ridden with him i’ve noticed that the front end makes a sound like a squeaky bed mattress as he drives around, what would cause this sound?

Most likely the bushings on the front suspension are dry.
