Any ideas what this noise could be?

I have a squeaking noise from the back of my jeep when i go over bumps, like spring squeak or something. It's for sure coming from the back of the cab of my 06 Rubicon which is all stock so far. It could possibly be from the tire carrier but i have not been able to isolate the problem. Any ideas anyone?

I would guess the tire carrier as well, or it could be your rear tailgate hinges/latch. The other thing it could be is the bushings in your control arms. Have you had it in the mud? If not, disregard the last suggestion. Good luck, and keep us informed.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Try taking your spare off and see if that helps.

No, its only a month old and its never been in the mud...yet. But ill try to take off the spare and see if that solves the problem. I don't think its the bushings in the control arms but i could not say for sure. Thanks for the feedback.

Do you have a hard top? Mine makes some noise from time to time.
