Could be alot of things, including worn struts, strut mounting plates, etc. Need to have the front end checked out to get an idea of what the problem might be.

mine (2000 camry) has the same problem the suspension squeaks over even small bumps. I checked the struts and shocks and they don't need to be replaced. I don't know what the problem is but its annoying.

The most common causes are worn sway bar links, tie rod ends, strut mounts, and lower control arm bushings.

Sway bar end links and strut bearing plates are most common on Camry's!

Gabe, there is a service bulletin from Toyota that indicates that the steering tube can be completely dry of lubricant as mine was in my Camry and it was detached and filled with grease which solved a big squeaking problem. The people above mentioned most front suspension problems and I have had to replace upper strut bearing plates repeatedly in Dodge products for squeaking and have noticed what I would call a patter in the Toyotas.
