    Everytime I go over a speed bump, or a gutter, or anytime i have to use the suspension, my back left squeaks a lil and my back right squeaks like HELL (and I emphasize hell). I dont know what part of the suspension it is, but springs seem like the obvious answer. I know jack about suspension, but was wondering if there's any kind of household or storebought adhesive or spray or sumthin you can put on it. It's the stock suspension still, and any help is graciously accepted.

    First check to see if your rear spring isolators are in place and intact. Look for a rubber pads at the bottom of the spring and the top. If they are missing or torn, the noise is the spring rubbing against the metal spring perches.

    If that's not it, it's probably your lower control arm bushings. Try to get some spray lubricant (WD40, silicon spray, etc.) worked into the bushings. You may have to disconnect the arms to do it right. Or - you can take the car to a shop and ask them to lubricate the bushings.

    My aftermarket control arms have grease fittings on all the bushings, which are also polyeurathane. They are Granatellis by the way.
