Squeak coming from passenger side rear seat area

I can't for the life of me find the squeak coming from the passenger side rear seat area. I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited and when i back of my gravel drive way or do anything that might torque the unibody i hear a squeak. It just started happening recently as soon as the temperatures dropped below 40. any ideas?

Re: Squeak coming from passenger side rear seat area

this is just speculation but last time my chit made noise like it was my track bar and control arms ... does it sound like it's being thrown around as if the whole body is moving side to side ???

is it coming from inside or outside ... a good way to test is get under neath hold the track bar (stabilizer bar) and let someone push the car sideways and see if that noise is still coming if not then do the same to ur upper and lower rear control arms ... all of mine were out dont know how but it happened ...

again this is just speculation ...

Re: Squeak coming from passenger side rear seat area

it sounds like it's coming from inside but i can't seem to reproduce the noise, i've pushed and pulled on everything inside and can't seem to find it. i'll try getting underneath the car tomorrow and see if i cant find anything. i don't believe it's the rear seat latch as i've driven around with both seats folded down and it still squeaks. it doesn't sound like a suspension squeak, more of a squeaky plastic.
