An annoying squeak has suddenly appeared

Coming from the rear suspension and I'm thinking it may have something to do with the rear spring mounts? I checked all my bushings for the sway bar, LCA's and made sure everything was torqued properly on these + the watts link. When the car is under 20 mph and more so on deceleration, I keep hearing a squeak. Pushed down on the rear of the car a couple of times in the garage and heard it as well. Any quick solutions here or do I need to take it in?

I was thinking the same thing.

I use Prothane super grease and it seems to be working well out back.

Beside being crazy sticky, it has excellent anti-washout characteristics.

A 14oz tube will go a long ways, got mine from Jegs.

If you can get the back end up on ramps, jack stands or some other similar safe method, crawl under the car and get someone to lightly bounce the back end.

If you have trouble pinpointing the location just by ear alone, get yourself a mechanics stethescope.

There are plenty of them out there, they are fairly inexpensive and are handy to have.

I have an annoying squeak myself, but mine is on the passenger side of the dash, probably the dash rubbing against other plastic or metal.

It is on this summers fix list.
