Default Accord Squeaking Over Bumps

It's an 1997 4 Cylinder Accord

I changed my brake pads recently and I'm not sure if that's what caused it. The car will squeak on bumps along the road when driving NOT when turning the wheel etc.

I did some research and discovered that it might be the bushings but I checked and the bushings are just as worn on the left and the right side though they both are pretty worn. What could it be?

Thank you.

Bushings or struts

I would say more likely struts.

Does it make the squeak if you down on the front of the car?

It did when I push it down though I initially thought it wasn't the bushings because the left and right side bushings had the same wear but only the right was squeaking. So I just sprayed some WD-40 on the right bushing and the squeaking actually went away.

I'm assuming this is a temporary fix but it doesn't squeak or barely squeaks when i push down on it? It's just weird to me that only one side can squeak when the bushings are worn pretty identically.

Thanks for your answer btw
