Have you remembered to plug the crankshaft sensor back on the side if the gearbox bell housing ? do you have a spark ?

Try rocking the car from the outside using your body weight. See if you can isolate the noise to a specific corner of the car. At least then you can work to find the source of the noise without being distracted by driving.

any kind of movement makes it squeak. the squeak is loud and its coming from the back.

Ive have that on mine at the moment, it will be a joint dried out basicallly, it will need replacing at some point, I would also jack the rear end up and check your springs are ok, they are known to break on the E38.
