    Squeak coming from LR of car

    I have searched and read about bushings that tend to squeak in the rear of our cars, which ones exactly are they talking about though? The two larger ones on the top?
    I have this squeak that appears after about 25mph from the drivers rear side, doesnt change with speed, applying brakes doesn't change anything, turning doesnt change the noise, it's just constant like a broken record.

    Anybody dealt with this before?

    A constant squeak? Usually if its bushings the noise will be a function of suspension travel over bumps, not speed.

    First off, I want to say thank you for your reply. I was beginning to think there was a secret handshake I missed here.

    Just a constant squeak. I have listened closely while going over RR tracks and bumps and there are no noises, just that dang squeak after about 25mph. Nothing that I do (turns, brakes, bumps) changes the sound. I hit a couple of the bushings that I could reach with the wheel on with some liquid wrench and nothing changed.
    Is there anyway to test the hub/bearing for noises, beside replacing it and hoping for the best?

    Do some quick S turns like a NASCAR driver warming up their tires. The pitch of a noisy wheel bearing will change or go away when you put a side load on the bearing.

    Strut mounts in the rear can drvie you absolutly nuts with the consistant squeaking.
