I have this squeaking coming from either the driver side dash or inside the door panel, everytime when I hit a bump or when I drive at certain speed on an bad freeway.

Sounds like a spring losed its lubrication. i took out the driver side air vent.. thought it was the air duct but it wasn't. Get under the dask.. didn't see anything wrong.. Look into the front trunk area.. nothing.

Any idea? I know it's hard for anyone to tell by these description. Could it be the suspension? but it sounded so close. Hope I can get lucky if someone had the similar problem.

Mine is doing the same but it is coming from more up front...I particularly notice it when I go over a speed bump or enter a driveway at an angle. It is more of a creaking noise and the guys here at Pioneer Porsche in SD said that there are two metal bars or braces behind the dash that have a tendency to rub...

Their solution is to give it to them for 1/2 a day and they will pull the dash apart & put a piece of felt between them... Apparently it is a comon problem and while not hard to fix technically, it is fairly labor intensive.

My 99 996 c2 had a similar noise, the struts you mention are in the luggage compartment, if you remove the mouldings on either side of the battery compartment you can see them. Each one has a bush at the point it is attached to the body. In my case the bushes were replaced and it fixed the problems. I think there are some TSB's re this problem.
