Default squeaky sound turning steering wheel to the left ?

my car is a 90 crx si with 250,000 miles on the chassis,

recently it makes a squeaky noise as i am turning the steering wheel towards the left, usually when going slower speeds, such as manoevering around a parking lot and stuff like that, it sounds like its coming from somewhere around the shock/spring assembly & upper control arm area in the wheel well, above the tire,

my friend who is a mechanic was looking at it as i turned the wheel and i did too, and it all looks good ?, and i tried to spray some silicone lube around the area but did'nt get rid of the noise?,

what do you think could cause a squeaky noise like that when turning the wheel to the left ???, bushings ?, damaged spring ? etc . . .

the shocks and springs were installed in 2003, they are kyb-gr2 and H&R softsport OE springs (.75" drop), so they have been used 11 years and probably time to replace with new ones, cause i notice the ride is'nt as good, and the springs look like they got lower over time, from being used, cause now it looks more like the car is dropped 1.5" -2" instead, which i hate, cause it hits stuff more easily going over dips and bumps, and harder getting out of car or harder to bend over doing stuff in the car, etc . . .,

could it be something to do with how the drivers side front takes more use than the others since the weight of the driver is always there and therefore taking more of the brunt than the rest of the corners of the car ?, would'nt that make stuff go bad quicker on that corner of the suspension ? causing squeaking ? or maybe something else ?
your opinions would be appreciated, thanks
