front suspensions noise

I don't know whi my front suspensions make a rubber noise... If I pass over an artificial bump in the road (those made to slow down cars), the front suspensions (springs?) make a rubber noise... I don't understand what it could be... It's like when you steer on a linoleum floor...

so much rubber noise is normal? It seems strange... I also have a Honda Civic m.y. 1992, it has no problems like these... It has 7 years more!

Mine did the same thing for a while, It is the ball joints. Just use a jack to lift the Whole front end not just one side. Let it sit for a minute and then let it back down.
The ball joints don't have enough grease in them.

How do you add grease to ball joints?
