Is there any play in either front wheel? You can only check this with truck hoisted and try to wiggle the tire in and out. It should be solid.
Because when you make contact with the stops and suspension flexes over bump like op described it is metal on metal and makes bad noises, now if you put a dab of grease on there it will lessen the friction removing the sound.
Sounds like you don't understand friction and viscosity so you call BS.
