    No but it has to do with the seals for the hatch. They most likely need replaced.

    Now unless you have no subframe connectors and have flexed the body enough that the hatch doesn't seat right then the weather seals have long past.

    No subframe connectors yet, but if the car did flex, wouldn't the hatch not close, or be hard to close??? The car is a 1999, and I know the weather stripping does need to be replaced......also does anyone know where I can get new shocks for the rear hatch????

    the best way for you to check is to pull all the plastic side plastic panels (the ones with the small speakers) out, take the top storage holders in the trunk, take the spare tire out, pull the carpet out and lay it toward the front seats. Dry everything up and close the hatch. You can either spray water with a water hose around the hatch area and keep checking until you can see were is coming from or get inside and have someone spray water on the car. Most of the time is the hatch seal needs replacement.

    Check the seal around your hatch glass. Could be leaking there as well. In the meantime I'd pull the plugs under the rear of the car to keep water from pooling up there.

    you can try spraying silicone spray and rubbing the seals with it. Make sure you wipe off the excess. If the seals are dry it cause leaks. I had that issue when I bought my car and since I started using silicone spray they haven't leaked anymore.

    My previous 99 Z28 had that problem when it rained. My carpet in the area you're talking about would be soaked.

    It only would happen during hard rains so I never really worried about it.

    Good luck with the remedy.
