Just yours. I get a CLONK noise when i reverse just like a worn out rubber thing up front and im too lazy to replace it. Try some of that stuff you get from super cheap that stops squeaks it works.

Re: Very sqeaky EA and why

I only got squeaks in my EA after a lowered it and treated it like crap

But your right, squeaks are very common. Ageing cars, flexing shells and questionable fit and finish of the plastics. you'll find if you go pulling it all apart, giving things a good clean up and installing it all nice and tightly it should be fine (im assuming its a interior squeak, finding suspension and body squeaks sucks)

Re: Very sqeaky EA and why

I wouldnt be to concerned. MY EA has been squeaky ever since i bought it. It comes with age and because the EA was the first model of this line and as such not all the parts and finish are the best. If it does really concern you go and get it checked out

Re: Very sqeaky EA and why

some of the EA's just need a bit of grease in the ball joints to stop the squeaking, others need a loud stereo to drown out the squeaks
