If you want to elimnate the bushing take a can of wd40 and spray every bushing you see on the rear of the car including the rear shock tower bushings. That noise in the first video and the one where be puts his phone on the gas tank sounds like its coming from the b pillar all the way back to the trunk area. Depending on where he mounted the phone on the gas tank, long story short sound does travel through metal and the phone have been acting like a stethoscope.

That sounds like a metal to metal noise with something slightly loose like a bolt or screw. I have had a rear seat frame bolt come slightly loose and you hear the seat frame squeak agaisnt another metal object it is connected too. I had three people here listen to it that work on cars back at home like I do and they all say the same thing. Imo, thats what i would be looking for.

Possible a rear u-joint and you can only hear it when the car is on the ground and applying a load on the tires, diff, all the way to the rear ujoint. If you can have someone stand at the end of your drive or on a road and drive past them at 25mph and see if they hear it as you pass by. If it is something on the outside they will hear it.
Have not had the time yet. But when I do I will do it for sure.

Well crawled in the back and could hear it but just barley, but when you roll the windows down its as loud as it was before the new pads... But I made a new discovery today, when I go around a gentle curve to the right It goes away but if I go left it is still there. Could it be a bearing and the weight of the car when I go right makes it stop? Still does not make sense that it stops when I touch the brakes, if it is a bearing.

sorry dude, I missed the post but Im deployed over seas and we are 8 hours ahead of yall so when it is 2pm there its 10 pm here.

Ok, so since you said it makes the noise when you go in corners and stuff then I would say wheel bearing for sure on the left side. But since you will popping the rear end cover off and removing the bolt that holds the axles in place then DO BOTH with new races with should come with the bearings.

Just a FYI if you go to autozone or etc and you ask for a rear wheel bearing and they tell you that can't or dont have it cuz its listed as N/A then ask for a Axle Bearing because thats really what they are called but they are the same thing though. Different part stores list things different.....

It's all good. And it doesn't make any extra noise when cornering, the squeaky noise just goes away.

Well, if you are going to do the work then go ahead and change the axle/wheel bearings shouldnt cost more then a $100 bucks if you do your own work.

Other then that you can check and see if the drive shaft and see if it is making a noise or take to a shower and see what they find out.

Ok thanks, I will probably just take it to the stealership. Im starting to think its the wheel bearings as well, but if I do all that work to change them and the noise is still there I will be pissed so yeah, im not sure what I want to do yet.

Just go in the dealership and tell them what it is doing and where the noise is coming from. If the car is given to a good tech there then im sure he will find the prolly which im sure they will give it to a good tech because problems like that are given to a newbie. I have worked a lot of dealership and know how they give the work out depending on the problem. Then, I would just pay the check out fee and do the work yourself because thats going to be a high dollar repair at the dealership depending on their hourly rate. I would do both sides if it were my car but thats me...let me know what they find out send me a PM

What's up southernstang00, got a Q about the wheel/axle bearings. When you replace them, does the bolt hold them in inside the diff? Also, are there any special tools you need? And finally, when you go to cap it and refill the diff, does it have to be level with the ground? Sorry for so many Q's.

Re: I need help with this noise.

There is a pin that goes through the middle of the diff keeping the spider gears in place and axles as well. To get the pin out you will need to remove a small bolt (6-8 mm) and the pin will come out.

Special tools you might need a low range TQ wrench for TQin the bolt because you dont want to over tighten it and run the risk of breaking or such.

Filling it up I would suggest on the ground but you can fill it up in the air cuz it prolly will take about 2 bottles I believe. I would rather do it on the ground cuz the diff will be even and you will get a better reading. Either way it doesnt matter but once it is on the ground check it by pullling the fill plug out and if fluid runs out and then you are ok. If no then add some until you get fluid running out. Go to a autoparts store and get a siphon gun and use it to fill the rear end because its easier. No worries im here to answer anything you need.

Re: I need help with this noise.

Check to see if any calipers are hanging up, may even be a bent axle shaft, not letting a brake release on the rear, had the same problem,had a bent axle shaft, mine is a 1998 GT.

Hope this helps!! Maybe you already checked it's. I just listened to your videos! My car made the exact same noise!! Drove me batty !! Took it to the dealership!! Took them 3 times looking at it!! I thought it was coming from the back, what it turned out to be after hooking it up to some kind of sound scope it was my front A arm bushing, The sound was traveling thru the frame!! They replaced it and the noise was gone!! I swore it was coming from the back.... But it wasn't!!! !!! 2 other people I've talked to had the se noise .. And it turned out to be the same thing!! So You might check it!!!!! It would only make the noise when driving!! It would notable the noise if just pushing up and down on the fender!!!

Alright, I just washed my car and noticed that the noise was gone for about 2 miles after I got done and then it started again. You think water getting on it would stop the noise. And how would I check that if I cant make it, make a sound by pushing on it? And did your noise stop when you stepped on the brakes?

All you can do is visually inspect them
!! If they look rusty or the bushings are as hard as rock 'n. my would stop making noise when i would put on the breaks!! What happens is when you put on the breaks it would put pressure on the bushing on the A-arm and it wouldn't make noise!! Same as washing it!!! The water would lube the bushing until it gets hot . Than the noise would come back!!!!
