(i just want you to know i had to google "squeak's" cause i couldnt figure out how it was spelled...)

i cant stand it! my susp. def. doesnt help it all....but my sunroof rattles (when i push up on it with my finger it goes away...) wind noises and other crap that you deal with when you get well past the 100k mile mark.

i did the little wind noise mod a while back with the skinny plastic tubing ran in the doors...but that doesnt seem to do much anymore except make it harder for me to close the door.

guess its just shit we gota deal with!

i dont have any wind noise unless i go above 90, at that point i get a little bit of a whistle from my right side (i think my side mirror). i dont drive that fast and its not that loud so i dont care. the only thing that bugs me is when i hit bumps i get a metal friction type sound that i hate.

Nothing squeaks, but my sunroof rattles, and something [my boost gauges or my speakers] rattle in the left side of the car.

I get pretty pissed when the sunroof starts rattling, because it usually does it for a while, but I just turn my system up.

I do get terrible wind noise. It sounds like my door/window is open. Kind of annoying, but only at real high speeds, or if the wind blows hard.

I can't stand squeaks and rattles! it so embarrassing rolling up in a nice car and having your suspension squeak.

The plastic piece over my steering column used to rattle and it annoyed me that bad that sometimes i would actually hold it

I don't know how people can drive old cars and trucks that are never quiet. i would go insane.

No squeaks in the interior for me, but for the engine bay. my cats going south. either internally or the heat shield is screwed. from 3k rpm to 5k rpm i get a really annoying very fast cow bell sound! checked all my exhaust connections, narrowed it down to the cat. thats ok though, a got a labree HFC waiting to be installed:)

steering wheel, suspension, wind noise, and the heater fan (goes away when i turn right) if it werent for the tiny little turbo they put under the hood it would be sittin in the bottom of the river.

If a lot of wind noise is invading the cabin, you may want to look at replacing the rubber seals around the doors and windows. Those of you with a noisy suspension might want to look at replacing your control arms, or at least greasing the ball joints.

My seat is starting to squeak a little, and my rear suspension makes some noise too, but usually the exhaust is loud enough to cover it up :P
