Squeaky fork and possible suspension fork upgrade?

Hello all, I'm about to hit 500 miles on my Rideal bike and I have an annoying problem. Seems like after installing fenders and tannus armour to front wheel I have a really annoying squeak. Seems to be from the fork. When I move bike gently left and right, front wheel only, it squeaks. If I lift wheel off ground and move it, it doesn't squeak. I checked fender bolt but I don't think it's that, sounds higher towards the steering tube. Also when riding at slow speeds, the squeaks are pretty loud. I think that might be related to the tire and the beads not fully in.

Also my Rideal I use 20 miles a day for commuting. I got the suspension seat post and love it, looking at forks now is that an easy swap? I love the suntour seatpost, and was looking at their fork, can any recommend it or another fork?

it was the brakes. the tire is still making some noise at low speeds though, i will try putting the beads down further later today
