I don't see a problem, just sounds like it needs cleaned. Do the brakes work okay?!

give it a clean

don't worry my whole front suspension made some really horrible noises earlier in all fairness I did off a 2 ft drop into a load of gravel and then thought a shoot load of mud and dirt and various other things.

jus give them a good clean.

reminds me must clean front disc's a bit the muds starting to making braking squeaky and tricky
