If they're partially open, they creak a lot under normal driving.
Any known fixes?

Yupp, there is a TSB for this exact issue. They replace some of the window trimming and that seems to fix the problem. Need to get it done to mine as well, but I'm always busy and hate going to the dealer. :D

Here you go:

I had to pull the panel off and put some felt tape in between a couple of pieces of sheet metal. Creaking went away for a while, but then yesterday it was back. I lubed the weather stripping and it went away again! Go figure...

I've had a creaking from the inside of the cab in the top right and left corners nearest the gate since I bought the thing.

Surely by '06 the rattles/noises will be gone, huh? :)

As far as the creaking goes, I think I have narrowed this problem down to the actual window moving, causing the rubber trim adjacent to it to make the sound. I confirmed this by pressing outward on the window while the sound was there.

For the wind noise, I live in Las Vegas, NV, and I am currently in Dallas, TX. I drove the Armada here and whenever there was a considerable gust of wind going accross the vehicle, it would actually seperate the outer weather strip and cause this annoying wind sound. Anyone experience this? This would happen on both the passenger and the driver side, depending on what direction the wind was blowing.

I've experienced that a couple of times. I wish someone made some aftermarket weather stripping- something heavier and more robust.

I know this sounds silly, but I have this problem and can consistently make it go away (for a while)

I did the newest TSB, even putting felt in between the two layers of sheet metal (in the corners) as the TSB directs. That did it for a while, but it came back later.

What I've recently been doing (because I can't stand to put this thing in the shop AGAIN) is to put a very thin layer of hi-temp grease on the weatherstripping that sandwiches the door. Gets rid of the creaking every time.

I guess the doors move with body flex, and the rubbing between the door and weatherstripping causes the weird noise. Actually, I think it's a combination of things because the dealer also installed new regulators and that helped as well.

I'm with you though- the noise is annoying. As long as this thing lasts for about 300k miles though, I'll be happy. :)
