Did you find a solution to this? I started to get the creak under acceleration some 800 miles after welding in turner plates and PF solid subframe bushings. Its driving me nuts lol

Haven't had time to try to fix it. It's such a frustrating sound that I haven't driven my car much since it started lol.

Do you think it's from the actual floor flexing now that sub frame bushings are solid?

My bushings are OE rubber. I've reinforced the floor with plates. The sound is gone when I put the seats down so it really makes me think it's from the seats or back shelf.

I'm happy to hear that it's a common problem. My only wonder is why does it start AFTER reinforcement.
