I am pretty sure I fund my rear passenger side squeak. I put grease on the lower shock mount. The noise returned after about 100 miles as my friend said it would. So I was wondering if you have any recommendations on where I can find a rear shock mount or if you guys have any experience in this job?

TIA and I hope you guys are well

2007 S80 3.2 AWD with 235k kms

Is this the right part?

Replace the two rear shocks. My 4C shocks were bone dry, from the outside everything looked great. I was replacing the fronts and a relative who works in the auto industry told me the term is porpoiseing when the rears are bad. When I replaced the shock I compressed the old ones. A week later they were still compressed. That was at 124,000 miles. Some of the shocks come with the mount. While in there you may also want to replace the sway bar end links. Total 3 nuts and bolts for the shock, and 2 for the end link on each side. use two jacks. One to support the car (with jack stands of course) and one to raise and lower the control arm so things line up easily.
