Hey guys,
sorry I've been off the map for awhile, i got married and i have been trying to get use to that. Anyways i have been wanting to post a few mechanical problems that i have been having. So my wife and i have moved to a house where there is a pretty big dip in between the street and the driveway and every time i reverse out i go at an angle and i get this really loud creaking noise from the driverside rear tire. I feel like it's a spring issue or something so let me know what you guys think it could be. as well i'm going to post a picture of my headlights. They're a mess and i want some input on how i should re adjust them. Thanks guys in advance

I had to adjust my headlights out of the box after I put higher-powered Nokya bulbs in. No rattling from the rear though. You figure out how to adjust those beams?

Its real easy if you look into you enginge bay and look at the headlight youll see a 10mm screw which you just turn and it will adjust the height of the beam

Right. I don't know if max72 figured it out. He's been around a while, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Yeah i know how to adjust the headlights. But the sound isn't really a rattle it's more of a creaking sound. It really sounds like it is coming from the driver side rear spring or the shock.

Hey just in case anyone else has this problem in the future. It turned out the rear control arm was bad. The part cost about 400 bucks.....thank goodness for warranties!
