Squeak from rear drivers side shock?

I'm not sure what is making the squeaking noise but this is the last thing I want to deal with on my new (to me) 03' S. I noticed it a squeak when I was going slow enough to hear it lol. I confirmed it this evening by shoving each area of the car to find the problem area.

My rear drivers side 'area' is making noise. What are some possibilities? Car still drives nice and I won't really have time or money to take care of it until spring at the earliest.

I'm thinking suspension (duh!) But I don't know what it will cost to get it fixed. For all I know a squirt of silicon and I'd be on my way.

What do you boys think?

Oh yeah, is there anyone in Denver area that might read this that might have a chance to maybe, help me out? I'll buy you dinner

If its an up and down squeak (meaning noise both directions) its a good bet its the strut. Technically you can drive on it and you will be OK. My 98' before her rebuild was running on totally shot original struts (when I bought her).

Be on the lookout for suspensions that come up for sale on here. I found a full set brand new ROW M030 struts and springs for $450 from a member. There have been other good deals on here recently.

These cars are truly and education and by the time your done you will probably know quite a bit about them. Good luck!
