I have encountered a torn dog bone (pitman arm?) where the grease in it dried up and caused the squeaking.Had it replaced and voila!
The cracking sheetmetal if I remember from previous posts,are located somewhere behind the rear backrest.The backrest and the rear parcel shelf had to be removed and the sheetmetal underneath needs to be inspected.

Today I began hearing a faint noise whilw driving. When I got home I began poking around trying to locate source of noise. I bounced the car and could hear a loud squeak coming from left rear suspension area. It was getting dark and I didn't have the time to take it apart to check further. It's a 91 525 5spd w/112k. I repalced the shocks 22k ago with Boges. Any Ideas? Are there any bushings that wear and squeak? I checked archives and saw a few posts about cracking sheetmetal from stress. Were does this occur?
