If you look underneath the car about 8-12 inches ahead of the rear passenger side wheel you will see a steel cable wrapped in rubber going through a ring bolted on the frame. You will most likely find that the rubber has worn away and it is metal rubbing metal making the squeak.

It is under the car in this area.

Unfortunately, greasing it is only a temporary solution, and I have used rubberized electrical tape on mine now, but I am certain that will wear away too.

This is the ring-you will see the red tape is what I added under the ring.

If at first you don't succeed, never try again...
