    Default Vectra C, 2002, Rear Suspension knocking/creeking noise

    Right, 6 months ago had rear control arms replaced as rubber bushes had gone.

    Had MOT last month had 2 new rear springs fitted as old ones had snapped, also replaced anti roll bar bushes as there was slight play.

    Everything was fine up until yesterday knocking/creeking noise at the rear at slow speeds and on uneven roads.

    Took everything out of the boot including spare wheel and the noise is still there, creeking noise when pushing rear of car down at back as if it is grinding against something.

    Please help!! pulling my hair out!

    Right couldn't wait sprayed WD everywhere everthing alot better but its like a tapping sound. No creeking but a click noise when pushed quite hard on back end.
    Took it up the road and a lighter tapping sound when suspension under a slow uneven road.
    Read somewhere it could be hand brake as I have it to take for a recall.

    P.s Yes it was the banana arms. Suspension control arms or something rubber bushes at either side.

    You changed the brake pads recently... Is it def from the wheel area and not the boot lid/lock?

    Definately wheel area, no pads and disc were 18 months ago.
    Ive had a recall from Vauxhall in regard to hand brake hadn't had time to take it.

    That's the handbrake itself slipping if you don't use the button properly, not brake related.

    Well I'm stumped, can't think what else would rattle as everything should be tight?

    Will have to leave it until father in law gets back from Cyprus.
    Will let you know what the problem is.
    Thanks for your help. Starting to think it might be bushes again as I got the cheap ones from ebay...........................

    Shockers sound ok. Can hear them huffing nicely and the back end retorts quickly.
