Squeaking noise coming from rear - 2012 srt8
 
I have this annoying light squeaking noise coming from the rear of my GC srt8. Whenever it goes on rough or bumpy surface I hear this squeaking noise. I would say its 95% time there when I am driving. Doesn't matter if I have th e rear passengers or not, the noise is there. It's been happening for past one month. Its like a loose spring getting pressed up and down under the rear seat kind off a noise. Not sure if it's the seat, or shocks, coil....

Any guesses ?

It's your spare tire/jack inbetween the tire. The jack is held in there by a cheap ass styrofoam holder which runs up against the tire or the tire rubs against the inner wall of the holder for the entire thing but that's where it comes from. Ever rubbed a styrofoam cup against something or anything styrofoam and it makes kind of a squeaking noise? That's what I get, no body else ever really notices it but me.

Now this video is kinda annoying its only 15 seconds but it shows styrofoam being rubbed against something and squeaking...you get the point...
I can NEVER get that stupid youtube posting thing to work so heres the direct link...
