    Default Creaking when going over speed bumps

    Anyone know how I can stop this insanely irritating noise?

    I'm replacing the front coils tomorrow (off-side has snapped), is there anything I can do to stop the squeaking?

    Front anti roll bar drop links and bushes should nail it ;-)

    Yip - creaking normally comes from the front ARB bushes.. Change the drop links too.

    But when ordering the ARB bushes be aware there are two different sizes and the dealers have a habit of supplying the wrong ones (even if you give them your registration number). I got supplied the wrong ones once, the next time I went and got some I just bought both sizes, much easier and they're only a couple of quid each

    Brilliant.

    I'll pick up the parts and do the bushes, drop links and springs at the same time.

    Cheers guys.

    I had a creaking on speed humps that was sourced to the strut top mounts. These can either be replaced or greased. Just so as you are aware.

    Cheers for the tip, I'll grease the top mounts when I put them back

    Thanks to the wonderous world of eBay, got my coils and drop links for a total of £80. Now just got to work out what size the bushes are...
