Squeeking in my rear suspension.

So this is my first post. I just bought a 2011 jeep patriot sport with the 2.4L today. After leaving the dealership i noticed a squeeking in the back. The dealership said they changed the rear bushings because of that but apearently it didnt help. Is this somthing i should worry about?

Try some graphite spray on the sway bar bushings on the frame.

Same exact problem with my 2010 patriot 2.4l. I left it at the dealership an extra day and they changed the bushings but that didnt do anything. I did notice that on the warmer days it went away. Hopefully its just the weather.

Or some silicone.

Are you sure it's suspension? I had a metallic squeak that took me for ever to find and it was the read hatch panel that was loose at the bottom of the window. The retaining clip was the squeak.

I have the same thing, drivers side only.
After having rear components replaced (bushing ceased ) It quitted way down. Really need to keep the bushings lubbed.

Had the same thing back when I had my Patriot. Happened when dirt got in those bushings. Put some lube in there and it goes away

Does spraying a sway bar bushing with WD40 void the factory warranty?
