Suspension squeak

Since about second week of ownership of my Terrain there has been a squeak in the drivers side rear suspension. When ever I get into the vehicle I can hear the squeak. I have rocked the vehicle back an forth and can hear the squeak. I'm thinking that either something needs to be greased or loosened up a bit and reset. Maybe a bushing issue? Shock?

Anyone else here experiencing the same issue?

I guess in the end it will be covered by the warranty.

Re: Suspension squeak

Did you ever get this problem fixed? Mine does the same thing. Dealer lubricated the rear trailing arm bushings twice, then on the third visit they replaced the bushings. Still not resolved. Talked to service writer again today, he said he talked to GM again, this time they are telling him that the park brake cable could be rubbing something. I don't know if it will ever be fixed. It's going in on Moday for the fourth time.

Re: Suspension squeak

for those currently looking to solve this issue it is a know defect in the parking brake cable. The techs at your dealer have the service bulletin. Mine will be fixed this week.

Re: Suspension squeak

Anyone have the TSB or TSB number for this problem? I'm taking our Terrain in next week to hopefully have it repaired.

Had the same problem a couple months ago, had the e-brake cable replaced/rerouted and a "spring insulator" replaced. No more squeaks.

Re: Suspension squeak

I took our Terrain in this past week for the rear driver's side creak. Unfortunately the noise could not be duplicated even by me. Since it creaked all summer long and now it's quiet I wonder if the noise is temperature related. So after waiting nearly 3 hours for the service nothing was done. I told them about others with the problem and even a TSB but the tech said he couldn't find any bulletins regarding the parking brake cables or creaking noise.

Re: Suspension squeak

My dealer just replaced mine and no NOISE!!!!! It was the service tech that knew about the TSB. Sorry I don't know the number. BTW I went to a GMC dealer.

Re: Suspension squeak

I had the same problem and swore it was the parking brake thing but the dealership disagreed. After several trips to the dealer they finally heard the noise. It turns out the frame bolts were not properly torqued. They re-torqued the bolts and i have never hears that sick squeaking noise again! Hope this helps!!!

Would you happen to have the paperwork for your repair? So I can give them an idea of where to start. The dealer I go to pretty much knows I dont come to them unless I really need something so their more apt to give me the benefit of the doubt.
