Airmatic really bad if you don't have a warranty very expensive to fix. I had to replace both in the front. One of them was making a clanking noise over bumps and the other one was not working properly. If you like driving with the sport mode this can cause your airmatic shocks to go a little quicker (around 25K to 30K ) they usually need to be replaced. I was driving and my dashboard started to flash red to pull over car was to low. I don't know how many miles you have but I sure hope you have warranty.

Hope this helps.

Don't assume it's the airmatic strut. Squeaking during turns can be caused by control arms and the like, as well. Determine the source before you make expensive replacements.
