Whenever I'm going over rough bumps or I stand up and lean forward (while going at least 10mph I would say) I can hear a screeching coming from the front end. Haven't found any similar threads so hopefully someone can tell me if this is normal or what to check. Thanks in advance!

Have you greased the zerks recently?

Yeah they look fine. If it was the pads wouldn't it make the noise more than when I'm standing up/leaning forward over the handlebars?

Just put it out there.
Grease your front arms.
Do you have to be moving or can you make it happen bouncing on the bumper?

Also it will only do it when I'm standing up if I'm going over holes and uneven ground. Otherwise I have to be leaning over the handlebars. But it's rather obnoxious and sounds horrible.

Is it a rotating screech like a wheel bearing? Or a up and down screech like suspension movement? Or, maybe a cracked frame?

I'm trying to get a good video with sound but so far no luck. Haven't been able to try for a couple weeks. I'll try to get one tomorrow.
