confused Annoying squeak from right rear tyre

96 EL XR8.

Got a really annoying squeak that is comming from the right rear tyre. as i drive along, with the window down, you can hear the squeak as i go over bumps. Had a look under and found nothing visible. even gave it a spray up but problem still there.
Could this be a wheel bearing or something else within the tyre.

Any help would be appreciated as its driving me nuts!!

Wheel bearings will squeak all the time. Check shock mounts.

Do you have wheel trims? There could be a stone wedged behind it making a sound like a cricket. Or your brakes could be metal to metal :grom:

MIne does the same and it is the sway bar where it mounts to the body. The bush is stuffed and it moves up and down slightly. It was fixed temprarily for a few days with a liberal spray of crc.

Hope that helps. Maybe park the car and squeeze under and get someone to push the back down and try to pinpoint the noise

Mate i have no idea what the hell it could be!
Its definately not the brakes because they dont sqeak. i'd know if it was them anyway. im kinda thinkin that it could be the rear swaybar bushes as they could be worn out after the car was lowered 6 months.
