: Need help: Car Twisting Apart

06-29-2005, 11:21 AM
I need help i have kind of a steep driveway with a sharp turn at the bottom, but when i go up and down my driveway my car sounds like it is twisting apart, and it does it all over town to not just on my driveway. It sounds like it is coming from the back right of the car and the best way i can describe it is like a creaking wood floor board in an old house. I dont have an suspension mods and i have taken my rear bumper off and gone down the driveway without it and istill get the noise. Please help me before i go suicidal.

I wouldn't worry, my RSX and Lancer both do it.

my rsx does it..particularly making a right turn into a gas station(they usually have a really high hill
i think any car under 30k will have some squeaking issue after 30,000 miles or so

I have that same noise too, however, I think it might have something to do with my rear strut bar and floor bar...I can only hear it when the rear seats are down exposing both, and I only encountered this noise after installation of both parts.

Well if its the same as mine, its coming from the headliner (passenger side rear passenger area). Have someone sit in the back and light press up against the headliner and see if it goes away. If it does its the same problem I am having. I haven't done anything about it yet as it likely will require the removal of the entire headliner and I'm not sure I want the dealer to hack that... :( Just my two cents worth.

I noticed the same thing generally turning right into somewhere with a slight to steep incline.

Check your rear sway, it might need grease.

that's the one thing about our cars. soooo many squeeks. even down to the springs under the airbags

get some adhesive cloth and run it between any rubbing surfaces on the inside of the car. its cheep and works pretty well. :thumbsup:

Its gotta be normal. My car does the same thing cuz my apartments are elevated so there is a steep hill leading up to it and it creaks everytime I go up the driveway. But I think that I hear it more around the moonroof.
