Going in for Creaking rear, whining trans, and CEL

So, I am back again (sorta forgot about AFM ever since the miata joined the family). Anyways, here is the problem... Every time I take off (slowly like normal take off) the left rear creaks... It started about two weeks ago. Now a friend who was in auto tech said it could be a strut mount. I had the LCA off about 3 months ago and the bushing is good and well lubed. Anyone elses LCA squeak.
There is a really tiny ford dealer in my town (I am in OK for school, Fred Harlan Ford in Okmulgee). I might go and since the I guess lead tech is also the service adviser (it seems like that when I got my oil change done). I am going in to get tires, and a check over everything (driving home DEC 13), and fix the CEL (same evap code), and look at this creaking, and also maybe take a ride and see what he says about the whining transmission.
I plan to be upfront and tell him it is tuned, and he will see the after market sway bars. I am at 32k miles so my B2B is running out so might as well.
If he comes back and says the LCA is the issue. Think it is ok to ask how he came to that conclusion?
IF he comes back and says it is my intake causing my very small evap leak. Is it ok to say another dealer found it to be the capless gas system and how he came to the conclusion that it is the intake (one dealer "fixed the CEL and the other said it was probably my intake but they were not sure).

I am now 19 (a few of you might remember when I was 16/17 and me picking up the car). I am 1600 miles away from mom and dad (mom is zero help... well yea and dad... probably has never made a Warranty claim on the 6 new vehicles he has bought)

You asking him to explain his findings is perfectly ok! If I were you I'd contact Deysha here on the forum first before taking it in. She'll be able to escalate if necessary. Just send her a brief message with your issues along with your contact info, VIN# and mileage.

I too plan on bringing in my Stang tomorrow with similar issues. I have aftermarket parts as well and I must admit I'm a little nervous. I hope all everything works out for you. Good luck!

Sadly this is not my first rodeo with deysha (actually forgot about her but good call!)... or warranty. I might go in and see if we can take care of it as is and then if they come back yea a strut mount is busted but you have LCAs so we wont cover it and then deysha comes in. This is a real small dealer (owner keeps a 2012 and 2013 personal boss 302s in the 3 car show room). So hopefully we can work together
