Ok I did a search on a Creaking Interior. My Interior Creaks like a Wooden Ship in a heavy sea at every bump. I understand some noise from the Tein FLEX's but I worried that I've have may crack or even broke something in the body. Does anybody else have this problem? If so what did you do to fix problem? (strut bar, underbody braces, etc.)

In my case, the creaking got noticably louder right before the struts broke... I've broken two. Don't worry about it unless your steering starts getting squishy. ;)

I have a few rattles here and there, one I think is coming from below the passenger seat, sounds kinda metallic, and the dash rattles close to where it meets with the windshield. I might try to get rid of them one day, but i expected the car to rattle when I bought it, and it's rattled since day 1 (two weeks ago)

You guys don't know ratteling until you've switched to cusco mounts. Wooo baby...when I'm pulling away in first from a light (or anytime i'm in low rpms) the vibrations from the engine rattle the crap out of my interior and shake my mirrors so bad everything goes blury. It's much less like a creaking ship then it is a mini earthquake. But I love it :D . Like someone else said, this is an STi, not a Bently. Also, certain times at idle I have this rediculously loud clanking sound coming from somewhere under my passenger seat, it sounds like it's coming from the undercarriage. Normally if I WOT it that goes away...it's really weird.

I love this car's roughess, it reminds me what I'm driving.

My STI is also responsible for the death of one of my USB memroy sticks. I had it on my key chain, and I guess after weeks of hard acceleration/deceleration it broke the chip apart inside the stick. :lol:

The only rattling in my car is from the sun visor joints. Apart from that i find the STI to be very well insulated for the kind of car it is :)

My litle cruise control handle rattles at every bump, and there is another noise coming from somewhere near the hatch.. oh and the seatbelts mounts. If our cars would have all the same rattles, itd be hell in there!!!!!

My car used to creak until I figured out it was just a few loose bolts attaching the rear seat braces to the car. Those are the two black viertical bars behind the rear seat. Tightened them up and all is well.

I finally have got all my creaks/sqeaks and clunks out. Here is what I had to do:

Raamat the entire trunk, and lid. The rear deck completely, and then I also did the divder between the trunk and the back seats, then on top of that I did dynamat foam 1/2" thick. I did the entire back seat and all doors. THe car is super quiet but I had one more squeak coming from the dash schroud around the speedo cluster, so I put a layer of raamat on that. Then I did koni's and for daily driving I have them set to full soft and they soak up a lot of bumps. FINALLY she rides like a normal car. Some call me stupid because its supposed to be a "rally" car. Well I finally got the daily driver I always wanted and I would never go back to the way I bought it new again.

I get a small creaking noise that seems to be coming from the ceiling light. Only annoying if I let it be.
