I was at a local shop having a new set of tires installed on my 17 GT - premium, non PP. The installer noticed a lot of play on the drivers side rear wheel hub, he showed how it would rock back a forth. A new rear hub/bearing assembly was installed. An alignment was also done on the car. I now hear a metallic chirp from the drivers side rear when I back out of my driveway and when taking off from complete stop in 1st. I also hear the chirp intermittently during 1st-2nd gear shifts. Anyone have any ideas as to what a possible cause might be or things I could check?

I think you have a bad hub. Mine did the exact same chirp type sound from stop and when excellerating at slow speeds. My car only had 1000 miles on it. Changed the hub and hasn't done it since. Certainly odd that it happened after you installed a new one but sometimes ya just get bad parts. Mine was also right rear.

After searching this site I discovered a few things.

Check that rear spindle nut is torqued to spec.
Rear spindle nut is single use.
Rear hub assembly is covered under the power train warranty. Ouch.
