    Rear spring squeak TSB???

    Ok, so I found this on a 4thgen FAQ.

    Q: What's that hollow clunking noise from the rear over bumps?
    A: A clunk is most likely the rear springs which are "popping" over bumps. If you have squeak, it's probably caused by the metal springs rubbing against their metal perches. In either case, a Technical Service Bulletin (#B005001) calls for the placement of rubber isolators at the bottom of the springs to act as cushion. You can probably do this yourself by wrapping some rubber hose around the bottom coil (down by the axle) of each spring.

    It sounds like the problem I have, but I can not find the TSB on the NHTSA website? Anyone have anymore information?
