When I pull out of my garage, the rear end goes up a slight incline and something back there squeaks everytime. Also, when I pull out of the street I live on, the rear end squeaks as each tire drops off the curb (about an inch). Is that the shocks? It sounds like something needs to be lubed. Once I've driven a few hundred yards, it stops, but when the car is cold, that squeak is there.

I have the same problem. Sounds like something rubbing against the rear springs. It only does it after sitting a couple days. Just haven't had time to crawl under and look. Probably would be best to put it on a drive-on rack, so it is sitting at it's normal ride hieght.

I have the exact same problem, but haven't had it checked out. It only does it when the car has been sitting for a couple of days, and only makes the noise when I first pull out.

Exactly! I get a block or two away, and it is never heard again that day. That is why I haven't worried about it. It has 4200 miles on it.

Ditto, I noticed it the other day when I was waxing the rear quarter panel. I heard a fiant squeaking. Have never heard it while driving though. Will have to keep an ear open for this.

Same thing happened to me today. c. 1200 miles on it, turning out of the driveway, there's a god-awful scratchy-pop sound from the rear, then it stopped. It was fine the rest of the trip, though.

Mine does the squeak too. But only when cold. After a half mile or so it is never heard again.

I have had noises in past that sounds like this concern that have been the rubber the springs and shocks{struts} set in get "cold" and take a minute to warm up. some times you can help it by spraying something like wd40 on the mounts and top and bottom of the springs to keep them from "sticking" together for the first few minutes. mike #790

Last weekend, as I was leaving my house, I heard a sound like I was dragging a limb underneath the car. Just down the road it quit. I looked back to see what it was and nothing was there. It has not happened since. It was very strange!! :eek:

There is another thread that addresses a rear end squeak which turned out to be the emergency brake cable located just in front of the rear tires. If you move it with your hand, you will hear the squeak. I sprayed silocon lube on mine. Others changed the bracket. Search on "squeak rear" under mechanical issues and you'll find the thread.

I have the same squeak! Drove me nuts, still drives me nuts and nobody can find the problem! Had her in the shop several times as well and they always seem to find something else loose or not connected, but it never rids the squeaking! They even changed my quad shocks thinking it was that!
Mine started the same way as most of you describe, first thing in the morning, then it would go away. Now, it always squeaks except if I get caught ing the rain, then that seems to lube whatever it is.
Next step is a silicon liquid bath.

I prefer to use a silicone lubricant on bushings, rubber, or urethane parts in the suspension. I'm not sure WD 40 is the way to go.
