I'm hearing a creaking noise ( Like an old wooden rocking chair ) coming from the back of the car on both sides, it only happens only when driving slow. I don't think it's the shock absorber because when I hit a road bump it doesn't make the creaking noise. I have a feeling that the coil spring could be doin it.
Have someone bounce the rear when your under the car. The are a lot of components in the rear suspension which could be getting close to being worn out, I'd suspect that its possibly one of the rubber bushes or ball joints.
