Recently drove from my home in the SoCal Desert to Carson City and after 250 miles the whole suspension was squeaky like a styrofoam ice chest was in the car with us. 2011 Elise R. Next morning: quiet like normal. Around 100degrees F. Only happened on the way up and back. Is there a fix or is this why they invented earplugs?

yes first lotus, but not my first Brit car. I entered the Silver Dollar Car Classic in Carson City, on a lark, and had a ball. I was parked next to a 1911 Maxwell and the owner of that one had great fun telling folks I had the 2011 Maxwell and he had the 1911 Elise. Was just a wee bit concerned about the squeak.

I went a different route to fix my squeeking. If you install the innovative mounts, the car will rattle and vibrate to such a degree that you stop noticing the squeeking. You get cleaner shifts under hard acceleration and breaking too.
