    2 things: 1. something is loose, fix it NOW

    hole or break something. 2. Unrelated to the new shocks. Treat your rear seat with Meguire's leather cleaner/conditioner (autoaone) or better, Lexol (horse/saddle shop or on-line) conditioner, especially where the seat meets the back, and any other mating surface.

    When troubleshooting, always consider what changed last - so I'm betting on number 1 - they didn't get something tight or mounted wrong.

    I have taken it back 4 times for them to look at and they can not find anything. It still occurs with the rear seat removed. I would have to look but I think I did OEM on the rear and bils on the front. The car just turned to 71k today and I probably did the shocks and struts at 65-66k.

    If its mounts, the squeak will turn into a bump

    very shortly. It has been a bit chilly in GA lately...maybe your sway bar bushings don't like the cold...or your RTABs. I would bet its rubber related. Best Regards, Mike

    I have the same squeak and it is starting to get annoying. I am going to have my Inspection II done shortly. Will let you know if my mechanic finds anything.
