    Default squeaky rear end

    hi,
    I recently took my car to wales, where the roads were a bit countrylike and bumpy. It was wet and i didnt have my parcel shelf in, I then noticed my back suspension was crazy squeaky (seemingly predominant on the passenger side i think). when i got on to the motorway it was fine, going over speed bumps is fine, the day before when it was nice and dry it was fine. It seemed something that happens in the rain going over really bumpy roads. I remember it once before and that was a very misty/damp morning and then it went away.
    any ideas
    anything to be worried about, or is it just an annoyance.
    cheers guys

    sounds like rear bushes or suspension arm, check the springs for damage also.

    Mine has squeaked since I bought it from new, I thought it would go away with time, but 70,000 miles and it still squeaks, not too loud to be annoying, but always there!

    Your rear upper control arms/banana links are almost definitely u/s, they're a common fail. The other noise from the rear is loose pads in the calipers, it's a rattle, but with the windows closed it sounds more like a squeak....
    Put the parcel shelf back in, turn up the radio......
    I hear a groan from the rear of my car often, never to sure if it's the Mrs or the suspension
