Default stock wrx strut/springs high miles squeaking strut.

my 07 wrx still has the stock struts and springs with 83k on them. the passenger side front strut squeaks a lot when the car first starts moving, however after a few miles of driving the squeak goes away. other than the noise i dont feel any problems. could this noise be a warning that my struts are starting to go or is the noise just because its very cold and the struts need to "warm up"?

honestly "they" recommend replacing struts/shocks around 50K. the reason bein is the piston rubs the housing and fluid can leak past the piston. 83k id suggest replacing them. if u have the money do the springs as well.
