    the "COULD-BE's" would be a list a mile long -

    get it up on a hoist - and have it inspected -

    I don't whether you have an astro roof, but I had a possibly similar noise that turned out to be the rubber tube from the left-hand C pillar flopping around a bit in the empty space above the rear wheel well. A piece of duct tape fixed it.

    +1 I hear the bushings are notorious for wearing out early on STS and Eldorado. I need right rear upper control arm bushings on my Eldo. The squeaking noise is driving me nuts, will fix it when I get the $$.

    When you do get to check all the "could be's", don't forget to look at #49.
    Very overlooked, very common, very noisy.
    Visible inside trunk.
