okay, first off, its a 2wd just to let you know in case it would matter.

after i got back from Arizona, my car's been making this ODD creaking noise from the rear wheel area when im driving slow, braking, getting in/out of the car...

theres no play in the wheel bearing, already verified that.

i can bounce the car up and down with a lot of force all day, and sometimes it will, but sometimes it wont make noise :confused:

but just today, i did notice if i BARELY push the car downward and i mean BARELY... itll make that darned noise!

sounds JUST like an old car door opening slowly, you know... that creaking noise

what gives?!

sounds like the rear trailing arms bushing are dryed out, try shooting some lubricant on them and see if the noise disappears,

if there is no real play in the bushings and you can live with the noise, you don't have to replace them, just put some WD40 or anyother lubricant on them once in a while
