1996 Ford Mustang GT mileage 38,000 miles. I need help to rid my Mustang of an annoying creaking/squeaking noise from under the car (I think). This noise doesn't happen all the time, as in daily, but it happens whether the car is moving or not. If the car is stopped and you get out of the car, the creak appears when weight is lifted from the car. When driving you hear it steady. Lubrication of all parts, as specified in the Mustang manual, has been done with no difference. Note: I drove from Maine to California without hearing the noise once! When back in Maine it reared its ugly little head. Help it's annoying! The sound is very similar to old creaky bed springs.

Our suggestion would be to have your car inspected on a "rack" that you drive onto that lifts the wheels, not the frame. (This style of lift or rack can usually be found in a service center that does muffler replacements.) This will allow you to move or "work" the suspension while safely checking for the location of the noise. Look at the pivot points of the suspension. They have rubber bushings that can fail.
