you've obviously never worked on a Mercedes, Mitsubishi, BMW or Porsche lol

I'd also take a peek at those shocks.....they like to squeek when they're dead. Shoot some grease in the bushings...thoselike to squeek as well.
also check those so called "sealed for life" BJ's and TRE's...they like to make alot of noise when they die
