Hey fellas, I wasn't sure where to post this but I do have a question about my suspension. Like many of you, I installed tein basics in my 05' ele. However, I hear a consistent squeaking in the back from the suspension. I do understand that this is not an OEM part, and by natureit will not perform like an OEM part would, but I am curious if anyone else hears something similar or if I need to have my rear shocks overhauled by tein.
Any advice or insight would be really appreciated!
Thanks so much.

My guess would be either the bushings at the base of the coilover or the sway bar bushings. Spray some lithium grease and see if it goes away, granted it may only be temporary but atleast it would help narrow down the possibilities.

mine did the same. it happened to be the hard plastic dust boot that was reused along with the top hat.i pulled the coilovers and trimmed them and squeaks gone.
