Squeaking Coming from Turning or Automatic Transmission

I have no clue, as soon as I either slightly step on it or hard step on it say to get up to highway speed, there's a loud squeak right after the car shift....
any ideas?

Funny, I just started to notice a squeak when turning. The sound almost seems like its coming from the glove box area. I just got new struts and this happened (also a clunk going slowly over speed bumps)

OK, they think it's a defective strut, but if not they say it's the sway bar links. They are going to order a new strut and replace it then test. If the noise is still there they will suggest replacing the sway bar links ($200 total for both sides).

The clunks from the left front of my car disappeared after a strut/sway links/sway bushings replacement.

So then this will most likely be the answer for me as well.
