Creaking/squeaking sound
I had a creaking sound that was loud enough to be heard over the radio at normal driving speeds but loud enough to hear when cruising the parking lot.

It sounded similar to an old door opening/closing and was coming from the front passenger floor board area. After about an hour of checking it out, the tech came back and told me that the upper strut was bad and they'd ordered a new one.

I told them about the spring TSB but they seemed to think it was the strut so we shall see after the new strut arrives and I get it installed. Anybody else with the same issue?

Here's an update to my problem. I haven't read about anyone havin a similar issue bu wanted to post this incase somebody gets it later.

Dropped the JGC off this morning after I was told the new strut was in. Apparently it didn't fix the squeaking so they came to the conclusion that I needed RRT 10-088 which involves a bowed suspension spring. The new spring and dust cover should arrive tomorrow and get installed. I'll let you know if this does the trick.

Problem solved ...the TSB/RRT fixed the problem.
