    Real classy...


    But, at least you now know what the problem is and you can get it fixed properly...

    Well the dealership went from “it’s the rotors” to “it’s the struts” to finally “it’s the spring”!

    They said the rear spring wasn’t sitting properly so they readjusted it and boom, noise gone.

    Drove it home and didn’t notice any noise coming from the rear anymore. So far it looks like that was the problem.. Strange, wonder how that could of happened or if it’s always been that way.

    Agree... I had this happen a few years ago. The sway bar came out of the rubber bushings. Replaced them both & lubed everything up. Problem solved

    My 2016 squeaked, it was the shocks. The rubber piece on the top squeaking against the bottom half. Sprayed some WD-40 all around it and hasn't squeaked since.

    I had the same noise you described in my 2017 Tahoe. Only when making a right turn and the right rear suspension would flex. Dealer replaced the right rear spring and insulators. Noise gone and covered under warranty. They don't know why it happened.
