So I noticed today that when I got out of my car it seems like the rear driver side shock is messed up cause when I would get out of the car the car would make this noise like erkk from the shocks when the car would rise a little bit from me getting out... Now I'm not fat or anything so its not like the car sit real low..
There are several things that could cause the noise. It could be the shocks, the rubber bushings for the lower control arm, or the adjustment link. Is there any noise while driving? Is the ride height normal? Any snow, or ice built up in the wheel wells? You could try jacking up the car, and checking to see if the shocks are leaking any fluid. Has it only done it once?
The shocks generally are not going to leak enough to leave drops in the drive. You'll have to look at them directly. While you're checking things, check the condition of the alignment link, worst case scenario is listed in this thread. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=86772
You could try spraying some white lithium grease around some of the moving parts, like the lower control arm bushings to see if it quiets things down.
