springy noise at left rear wheel

hey guys im just wondering if i should get it checked at the dealership or not.
it started when the weather got colder and dropped to -12 then the springy noise got louder.
idk if it just needs some grease or lube. would the computer tell me if somethings wrong with my shocks or coilovers or whatevers making that noise.

Probably one of the road springs sticking on its seat then freeing itself with a...'springy noise' as you put it. A little lubricant sprayed on the upper and lower mount areas might help.

The part that needs lube is at the top and base of the spring and what they rest on. Sorry I have no knowledge of Canadian suppliers - but any light easing or penetrating oil will do.
