Squeaking noise when I get out of the car


So I've been posting a lot lately (sorry). I've gone through a first round of repairs and am trying to get the car to a good, stable point to regroup.

Its not a major problem but its kind of embarrassing.

I notice that when I get out of the car, there is this squeak coming from the rear. Its almost as if there are springs in the car that are worn or need some kind of service. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm not sure what they do, but could it be the coil springs need to be replaced?

I had some strange squeaks from mine, and it turned out to be one of the rear shocks.

Yeah, I've had squeaks come from the suspension when I get in/out sometimes or I push down on it repeatedly. Just normal I guess. Now if you hear a groan....that's trouble.

Maybe get a can of Silicone spray and spray some of the bushings until you hit the magic one. ....I heard the same squeak getting out of my car today!

considering that most of the cars we all have are close to being 20 years old, a squeak here and there is to be expected

I get that noise sometimes too, but with a nice car wash it fixes the noise, the times I've heard it was during the snow times...

Don't know if this would work... But hope it helps, good luck.
