If you hear loud squeaky noises when you’re driving, there could be a chance your shock absorber is causing the issue.
However, I found that the bushing from my rear shock absorber had become loose. This is a tell-tale sign it’s time to replace the shock absorber.
Dangers of a loose shock absorber bushing may result in shock being dislodged from mounting. This may result in erratic driving capabilities affecting steering, tires, and suspension.
Although a new shock absorber did not completely quell all squeaking for me, I’m glad to have replaced the shock as it was now rendered faulty due to loose bushing.
Other possible suspects to check would be the trailing – control arm to repair the squeaking issue. Hopefully the shock replacement will help.

Shocks go bad over time. This can result in uncomfortable rides and wear and tear of other mechanical components.
Replacing the bad shock with a newer one will likely solve this issue.
