squeaks can come from any number of places. New suspension bits may make it go away, but taking everything apart and putting the same bits together may also make it go away. Unfortunately, if the squeak comes from something you don't alter/re-torque/etc, you might get a sporty new suspension, and still have a squeak.

Try to pinpoint the squeak before spending money - lay on the ground and have someone rock the car up and down. Maybe all you need is a shot of lube on a bushing, maybe you need some new bushings.....

But if you want a new suspension, don't expect that the squeak will automatically disappear when you get it installed, for it may not go away.

If i were to purchase the BMP design lowering springs & suspension kit part number 48259 for $669.95 would that take care of that annoying squeak from the rear that I hear every time I hit a small bump in the road. I really need new sporty suspension and I would love it if it would take car of that squeak at the same time. If you think that I would need another part please let me know so I can order that also. Thank You
