    Rear end squeeking noise?

    Can anyone shed some light on my annoying aquuek noise? Its coming from the drivers side rear wheel area.

    Basically not doing it all the time but mainly when the road is uneven or going round corners.

    Its been worse since lowering the car and putting 18's on it.

    My initial thought is shock absorber but could it be bearing etc?

    Also are all Mk4 Rear shock absorbers the same?

    Its a Cabby by the way

    Hi,
    you say it's been worse since lowering the car so the noise was there before, can't be the Springs then,
    try disconnecting the shocks and testing them 1st before you order new ones.

    Mine was squeeking the other day, parcel shelf was slightly out but by the time id found that i had sprayed silicon lube onto seats underside, seat rails, rear shocks (as much as I could get to) and door hinges. Completely squeek free now. Sounded like it was coming from down under me somewhere although passenger said it sounded like it was in drivers footwell to him. Silicon lube is better than wd40 for stuff like that.

    If you can (i was gunna say if you have the correct Tools)

    disconnect them from the car and try pulling and pushing them in and out, they should have quite alot of resistance and should not push in and out easily. (like a nice young vir***) SORRY my mind wondered off there for a while.

    If they slop in and out get new ones.
