    Default Creaking noise from rear suspension...

    Evening all!

    Been a while since i've been on here!

    Ok, since last post, Vec has been running great, (engine refuses to feel old and tired like my old TDCi Mondeo did after a while), however it has cropped up some of the common issues that have been cited all over the internet!

    However i've noticed a strange noise that seems to be coming from the drivers side rear spring. When you come to a halt and gently let go of the foot brake to rest, there's a groaning sound from what sounds like the rear spring. Almost as if it's a dry joint or something as the rear of the car hunches back down to a level position. It's got to the point where people are noticing it now - it doesn't alter the handling, but as i know it's there it's doing my flippin head in!

    FYI, Had both rear springs replaced after dreaded snappage, rear arms and bushes replaced. Checked underneath and springs look fine, no leakage anywhere or signs of corrosion.

    To make matters worse i've got the dreaded knocking sound up front now as well. LOL what a state ha ha!

    Any ideas??

    (Apologies for the long post - i feel like one of those annoying patients that goes to the docs with about 7 illnesses pmsl)

    Thanks in advance
