    What kind of car is it?If it is a hatch,left up the hatch and look in the corners at the bottom where it meets the chassis,you should see a couple of rubber stoppers.They adjust by turning them one way or another,adjust away.It could also be your springs,mine were way fawked and made a horrible screeching noise.

    go to the parts store and get a can od 100% sylicone lubricant spray
    spray it on all the rubber door/hatch/trunk seels you can get to
    let it sit there for a little while before closing everything up to let the sylicone seep into the rubber
    that should quiet things up
    you will need to repeat this whenever it gets squeeky

    :werd: that stuff does wonders. I used the gel kind on my top, after that it was like i was driving in a minivan. No squeeks what so ever.
