    Right... WD40'd every single bush under the rear!! still creaking!!...

    Really bad too, even on flat roads now...

    Noticed rear PI springs are on upside down, cant be that surley???


    And the tapping when braking on the rear N/S is the inside brake pad. loads left on it. like new in fact but its bouncing free in the caliper - how can i solve that??? is it this that can also be making a noise when slowly turning left. knocking/tapping again untill straighten up (doesn't do it turning right)...


    Anyone else know what the creaking suspension could be...before wasting more cash at the garage!!!


    Getting really pee'd off now, dont even want to look at it let alone drive it... life was so much easier when i used the missus mondeo i dont give a **** about
