    could be spring sleve mod needed, radiator mount's or anti roll bar bushes as they all produce a creaking sound when worn,

    Thought it was more of a vectra trait. even my mates un modded sri does not like speed bumps at over 20...

    You can hit them at 40 in our mondeo and it doesn't care...

    Lol, i had to go over em in supermarket today at 7 mph! I even had a pensioner up my bum in a honda jazz shakin his head! I thought f*** u im not damagin my car for you just coz ur honda jazz goes over bumps fast coz its suspensions higher than a trolley! These drivers go over speed bumps at 40mph but then they get on a 40mph road and they drive at 22mph! Wots all that about! Lol

    Not sure what speed you're meant to go over speed bumps - I went over some installed over weekend at 60mph on way to early shift once (old address when I was fit). Bounced clear over next "hump", woke me up alright.
    Maybe just go over the bumps slower, not worth damaging car.
