Pilbara Squeak - rear suspension?

I had a squeak in the rear of the car for a few years. Last year's car service I thought it would go. It didn't & has got gradually worse. Couldn't really work out the exact source while driving, but my gut feel it was the suspension.

The squeak turned out to be a 22g rock stuck in the suspension arm. The mechanic said there was no damage, but pointed out the polished part of the rock.


(the white parts are the polished rock due to light set-up for photo)

Squeak has now gone & grateful he didn't make up some BS story that half the car needed replacing.

Watch those rock strewn corrugated roads & the bulldust fine powder disguising holes which swallow cars. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

There is an off-roading moral to this story Thumbs Up Glad the squeak has gone, damned irritating things inexplicable squeaks and rattles.

Can't really fault the car. It's done 4,000km on corrugated roads, some of them rock strewn as well.

The only other squeak has been the roof rack. High density Teflon fixed that. Also strengthened the roof rack joins & connections (there are threads on the roof rack topic).

I sometimes wonder what people are doing to their cars to cause some of the problems. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

Let them think you don't know & do them over quietly! Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!
