    Then I believe your only options are to either grease it like you already do or ge the updated part from GM.

    the coil rear shouldnt have as bad of a clunk because it has locator bars to keep the rear in place unless the bushings are worn out in them.

    Was starting to REALLY notice this on my 04 ECSB that I picked up 2 months ago. Will give this a try.

    So it goes in front of the rear axle? That last picture says visual from the rear which would make it behind..

    6-8 inches in front of the axle.

    I meant visual distance from rear end, sorry for not being clear. Like Tony said, they go in front of the axle.
