I have a squishy noise coming from the rear passenger side of my car. Do not know if it's shocks, struts, or something else.

Do you
have the same problem?

Chances are it is a strut. Have a helper bounce the vehicle while you check to see where the noise is coming from.

Most likely the axle bushings. VW has an updated part now. It's classified as a "1 piece" bushing now. The older bushings were 2 piece bushings, which always, always, fail.
