coming up on my warranty ending at 36k, I need the chirping noise in my heating blower addressed and the stabilizer links replaced for the 3rd time due to rattling over bumps. Anything else I need to have them check while in the shop before my warranty runs out??

Yes, this is your last opportunity to obtain the GMPP or GMEPP. I'd think about it!

My blower motor has made that noise almost since new. Goes away on higher fan settings only on fan 1 and sometimes on 2.

It does it everytime i turn the fan on, when i shut it off, it stops... Everytime.
Take it in again - this time make sure the tech (preferably) or the service writer can hear the noise. Service bays are noisy and it is very possible they honestly cannot hear the noise. Once they hear it and know what to listen for then they can figure out the problem and fix it.

this is a leased car, they said I cant get GMPP unless I own the car. I am going to be way over mileage when my lease is up I know, I had circumstances out of my control.

This is why I never recommend leasing. See if you can buy out the car before you go over 36K and then put GMPP on it.

Only way to buy out the lease is defined in the paperwork..... All the monthly payments plus whatever the agreed on buy back price is at the end of the lease. This would make no economic sense and would be cheaper to pay for any repairs needed that aren't covered by the powertrain warranty.

Personally I would look at what issues you have had and how much those things would cost out of pocket. Sway bar end links are around $30, a new blower motor is under $100(plus labor). If you made it 36K with only those cheap repairs I would think you should have no issues getting to the end of your lease with no expensive out of pocket repairs.

Mileage is not killing me, time limits are, have two other vehicles to drive. Only 9 months left on my PT, doubt if I will even hit 45K miles.

But in a way, seem to have a lot more peace in my life dealing with a problem than putting up with that BS I have received from not one, but two GM dealers. Wife said, just buy two new brake calipers, but I fought this out for over three months, and the job they did was terrible, took me four times as long to do it right if I started from the beginning.

Also had that chirping blower wheel noise, this was very peaceful, idiot that designed this thing didn't give enough clearance between the squirrel cage blower wheel and that plastic shroud. So just added one millimeter thick washers to the base of the blower motor to get that clearance. Bet it would have taken those idiots three months to learn that the contacts in my ignition relay was dirty, this took me five minutes to discover this.

Stabilizer links are less than ten bucks each, have that rubber boot on them so you can add grease that was probably the problem in the first place, is this worth spending another three months fighting about? Did they even properly torque those nuts? Sure don't on even my wheel lug nuts nor those caliper bolts.

Am saving those recalls, in particular the electric power steering, a 900 buck item for ten years or 150K miles. But found a dealer that would give me the parts and let me install them myself. 40 bucks for a water pump is not a big deal.

Still have to depend on them for a firmware reflash, but found a dealer that would do it for 30 bucks after some talking. Wish they would make a law to go back to PROMs, just more BS to put up with.

So far nothing about that fuel pump, but 250 bucks for that POS made in china piece of plastic is way way too much. My rule is a quarter of a tank of gas is empty. Needs that gas so the thing won't burn itself up.

If you are a returning customer and lease another new GM vehicle, they will waive up to $500 of mileage overage charges.

I am also leasing and the 39 month lease is up in April 2016. I am going to buy the car, but GM doesn't know that yet. So it was a bit strange that they recently sent me a flyer on Major Guard, the GMPP. But I was glad they sent it to me because I see that you can do the same as with Ford - you can buy Major Guard direct from GM on line and you can customize it. I am probably going to buy Major Guard right after I buy the car and I will take a higher deductible and powertrain only coverage. Higher deductible will bring the price down and only about 20% of people who buy an extended warranty ever need to use it. And that's because "dem robots know how to put a car together." Anyhow - DO NOT buy Major Guard from the Finance Manager at the dealer if you decide to buy the car.
