So I just installed my 5100s the other day. Had a banging sound right after, found out it was the bump stops that were rotted away that fell apart. Just replaced those, which was a pain because no auto parts store near me sold the damn things. Even the dealer had to order them.

Anyway, now I have this squeaking noise to deal with. I've narrowed it down to the passenger side. It was present before and after the new bump stops. It started after the strut install. I can make it squeak by pushing on the face of the tire towards the engine. It will continuously squeak while driving over even the slightest bumps. Any ideas on what it might be?

Re: Mystery Squeak...

When you changed the shocks, did you have a look at the spring isolators? The rubber can wear through where the spring rests and cause similar noises you have now.
If that is ok, did you move the shocks in and out some ten times in vertical position, to de-aerate them, before installation?

Isolators are good. And I did push em in like 5-6 times each.
