My rear end on My jeep makes a creaking noise whenever it goes up and down replaced the lower and upper control arms 6 months ago and sway arm bushings a couple of months ago, also when you come to a stop when the rear ends sits down or rocks back it has a loose kick in it was told that it was control arms but still does it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Had dorman control arms not jeep parts could that make a difference also when it is hot out the squeak is worse my wife says when she goes through the car wash it goes away but when we come to a stop gently it doesnt have that hitch but if we stop normal when the body rocks back is when we feel the hitch or some times when we let off the breaks to go after gently stopping it has the hitch

Yes can do both if jack is on DIFF releases tension. Dorman bushings hard Teflon/Silicone mix. Meant for off road so city driving hear squiks.
