Well, it was probably caused by your LS. My tires squeel a little when taking tight turns and when there are ripples in the road. I wouldn't worry about it

Mine did something similar, whether is was going around a corner or in a straight line with a bump. I changed the shocks, and she did alright after that. Apparently, my shocks were just too worn. Yours is a 2007, so I can't say for sure. Are your tires aired appropriately? What is it currently measured at?

weight in the back, its a light truck and with no weight in the bed it will bounce around.

I know my 07 reg cab is so light it bounces a ton more than my 98 ext cab does one because its a shorter wheelbase with the reg cab and 2 theres no weight in the bed.

I would say that's kinda normal. My rear will bounce occassionally also when hitting a bump going around a corner without any weight in the back. There's not much extra weight back there besides for your spare and a gas tank.

True...

"BUMP" for other people to comment.
