    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 101000

    Default Undesirable suspension noise

    Another (hopefully minor!) problem - My Signum has started making what I can describe as a loud creaking noise from the front suspension when passing over speed bumps and humpback bridges. Any ideas? Cheers!

    Easy job and cheap, mine are due and I looked it up. Mine get quieter once warmed up but a very noticable 'creak' when cold. Doign them in a couple of weeks when my HIDS turn up.

    anti roll bar bushes - approx £3 each from dealer , you need 2 obviously
    you will find it easier to do if you have a 10mm ratchet spanner

    drop links are approx £15 each
    to do them you will need a deep 18mm socket and a 17mm open spanner to hold the collar

    drop links should take about 10 mins a side
    arb are a bit more fiddly to get to so should be approx 20 mins a side

    I have this problem, bought the new ARBs and did the job, but no change. Still horrible squelching noise over speed bumps...

    Drop links are new too...
