I hear a creaking sound from my dashboard when I hit a bump on the road. I changed my shocks and replaced them with new ones and the sound went away. Later that afternoon the creaking noise came back but a little less than before what could this be?

    Hi, I was wondering if the source of the noise was found?

    There is a metal plate with 4 bolts under the dash behind the motor that connects to the sway bars. That is what is causing the noise
