Help 2009 SRT8

I have a 2009 SRT8 6 speed manual transmission. For about 6 months I have had driver ide rear suspension noise when the clutch is released and rear drivetrain torques when it loads. Been to the dealer many times and once they rack the car the noise would go away for about a week. Recently the replaced all the rear suspension bushings the noise went away for 45 days and is now back. Has anyone out there had same type of issue?[/FONT][/SIZE]

Welcome to the forum.

Piece of advice, don't post the same thing in 4 different threads. One is plenty, more will just annoy members and mods.

It sounds to me like you have a damaged or torn cradle bushing that's resulting in the IRS cradle hitting the body under load. Did the dealer replace EVERY bushing, including the cradle bushings, or just the ones directly connected to the suspension control arms?

You can see what I'm talking about in this video from HopNot, who has solutions for wheel hop. This particular video actually shows the cradle hitting the body because the bushing itself is damaged.
