No more noise?!

Well the weirdest thing happened recently.... ever since my camping trip (see post in Open Discussion "Who says a Mercedes can't off-road?") the squeeking noise disappeared, all together... have not heard it since. Though the steering wheel vibration was still there, so today (3 days after camping), I had the tires rotated, well that cured the vibration completely. So the steering wheel vibration was caused by the tires, and the squeaking? Geez, I have no clue.
The car did get VERY dirty (for pix see post!) with tons of mud and the like. But I washed and sprayed everything thoroughly the day I got back. I then, on Tuesday, took the car to the self-car wash, and sprayed all the crevices, the wheel wells, and underside of the car thoroughly to rid what mud/dirt was still stuck.
Well, I guess my problem is solved (*knock on wood* ZEBRANO of course!). Thanks for everyone's help, I truly appreciate it.
