    Rear end creak - BAD

    Hi all,

    I've got what seems to be a famous rear-end creak - it's the worst when the car goes over a bump that forces a lot of travel - like a speed bump or one of those concrete indented drainage ditches they put in parking lots.

    With the reading I'm doing I'm pretty sure this is the sway bar links. Has anyone done a writeup on the fix? I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going after, just not positive. Would love to see some pics before I get on my back in our gravel driveway

    With it getting colder it could very well be your rear glass.

    I know with the cold the last few weeks my creak/rattle gremlens have come back with a vengenace.

    If you want to check your endlinks/swaybar just make sure you have some grease on your swaybar bushings and that the endlink bolts are nice and tight.

    I noticed that when I would have the wheels uneven from side to side, like if i take a speed bump diagnolly instead of straight on, etc..

    Yes - it is pronounced in this angle.

    Hi - cold weather definitely brings out the gremlins; but this was acting up in June. I was just putting it off thinking it was my strut. It didn't go away once my struts were replaced

    Speaking of those other gremlins - I did some simple touch up on my drivers door that helped significantly. I'm about to do the passenger door - maybe I'll post pictures. Involves replacing a screw with a bolt and a little leftover dynamat. Big difference.
