Rear Axel Squeak

Hello All,

For the past 2 weeks I have heard a load squeaking noise coming from the back part of the car. I thought it might be time to change the brakes so I did that. The squeak got a little better but is still very noticeable. It only does it when I am braking and also when I go over some minor bumps in the road. I have never changed the shocks or struts since I have owned the car for 3 years, but as far as I can tell, they probably have never been changed. Any help?

Re: Rear Axel Squeak

I had the same problem. I installed new shocks, struts, and lowering springs, but the noise still persisted. The shop told me that my axles were going bad, so I decided to upgrade with an 8.8 rear end w/ sway bar. I have not heard any more noise or had any trouble.

Re: Rear Axel Squeak

I had a problem with my right rear caliper on my V6. It started to stick and once in a while it made sort of a squealing noise.
