I fixed the problem by installing a round piece of Dynamat on the bottom of the bag in place of the missing piece of rubber. I also put a piece of Dynamat on the platform that is attached to the rear end that the bag makes contact with when inflated. I made a card board template for that and traced onto the Dynamat.
So if you're chasing an annoying squeak check for the missing rubber pads!
Great info and nice fix, scuba. Thanks for posting!
