Everytime i drive i hear a squeaking noise from the driver side rear strut. It doesnt sound bad but its really annoying. Ive lowered my car using canuck motorsport springs and changed out the struts a year ago for monroe sensatracs.
What do you think it could be? I hope i dont have to replace the strut but do you think it could be dangerous?

Have you checked the strut mounts? When my right rear mount went bad it would squeak in that corner. Pop your trunk and see if the dust cover is off the top of the mount.

I think I paid $45 for the mount and installed it myself.

You might also want to take a look at the sway bar bushings. A lot of Grand Ams seem to creak/squeak there. I greased mine and the noise hasn't returned.
