2020 Hellcat Right Rear Suspension Sqeak (Please help!)

Ok so I have seen a thread or two on this, but I am not sure anyone had a definitive answer. I like a few others have a 2020 Hellcat with 1500 miles on it, and it developed an annoying creeking/sqeak sound out the right rear. No Worse over bumps, just a constant consistent sound. Quite obvious as you just drive at 20 mph in a neighborhood, you just hear that right rear creeking and sqeaking at a constant rate. I can make the sound pushing down on the right rear of the car as well.

Took it into the dealership and of course they had the "foreman" look at it and its normal "suspension settling". There is no way this is normal. If this is normal I will have to sell it which is the last thing I want to do. I already had the bushings lubed, Now what? I literally cant put up with this sound. I guess try a different dealership? The one I went to wouldn't give me a time of day, and that was after waiting for 3 weeks to get the appointment, plus 2 days to get to it.

As I learned years back with my SRT10 Truck, there is no such thing as an "SRT" mechanic and its the same guy who services the minivan working on your hellcat. And this is was my fear going back into a dodge, but here I am again.

Sorry for being emotional, I just love this car and this sounds is unbearable for the price we pay for these cars. I have a very loud AFE exhaust too, and even that wont cover up this sound!

Any help or guidance is sincerely appreciated.

Did you try having them check the disc brakes? I have a 2020 redeye challenger wb and i here a sqeak from my driverside rear only at apx 35 mph. No suspension mods. Also when i back up I hear popping noises from the front when i turn and back up and sometimes when i turn forward. Im bringing the car in and i believe they are going to put some sort of Shimmy between the brakes. Im going to upload the video of the car squeaking at 35 mph. Let me know of this is the issue. Give me 20 mins and i will upload it.

Heres my video. Is this the sound yours is making? Im having mine checked out on the 17th.
Can you open your hood and point it out? I assumed all you do is pull the drain plug out untill all the oil was drained. Where is this cooler part they must drain also?
The oil cooler drain is this just for hellcats? Or do the 392s have them? Btw thx for the link
