Default Squeaks!

Hello, before today I only had 1 sqeak in my 98 SS and that was when I pushed the clutch down. But now I have this squeak that squeaks the whole entire time I am driving, it is that little plastic piece around the shifter that the boot covers and goes under. My question is how can I cure both of these squeaks? Also it has 60,000 miles

get out of the car... shake it side to side and up and down... if squeaking then, start with a new set of bushings...

I agree with the bushings, have the same prob but I barely notice it when it does do it.

It's not uncommon for that plastic ring to break/crack, perhaps that squeak is from the cracked edges of it rubbing together? Might try replacing it.
