8) '92 Amigo project...
OK, here's whats going on!
The seam between the upper body part in the rear and the fender well (just above the frame)
seems to move and produces a scraping sound. The sound occurs primarily when navigating rough roads and curb cuts.
It stops when I put some lubricant in that seam however.
I'm wondering if there is some sort of shim that should be there
that would prevent the scraping sound.
Since the sound stops when I squirt some oil into the seam and it only occurs on the drivers side...
I know it shouldn't make the sound...any thoughts?
I thought that perhaps a weld has broken loose or some kind of shim is missing.

That sounds bad. Do you have any frame or rust issues? Post a pic of the spot.

I'm not aware of any rust issues. I do know that the car/truck/suv "hit" something at the drivers side rear below the taillight.
The contact or impact didn't damage the taillight assembly just bent in the sheet metal at the corner.
That was repaired and the body guy didn't mention anything about other damage.
The gap at top of the frame over the rear axle looks the same on both sides...
I'll try to get some pics this weekend and post!

Hard to determine exactly where on the body you're talking about. Should you wish a second set of eyes to look at it, let me know. We're both in Tampa so it would not be a big deal to meet and give it a look see.

johnie59,
that sounds like a deal. I've been curious about your "controls" anyway.
Send me pm and let's work it out! ...a second set of eyes on this project would help!
Thanks
