    Default Front Suspension Creaking Noise

    Hi Guys

    After abit of advice... Got a Vectra C 1.9 cdti 8v on an 05 plate...When going over Large speed bumps or those plastic/rubber sleeping policeman you see in car parks there is a creaking noise coming from the front...

    Is this the Anti Roll Bar bushes or Wishbone bushes.. or something else?

    Not sure whether to shell out to get it fixed... Its been like this for a few years so could it be a 'quirk' of the Veccy C

    Any advice would be great

    With you on this one, mine does this, and is considerably more noticeable on cold/stood overnight.

    I thought this could also be air con radiator mounts? Could be wrong though, MOT in a month, so i'll get them checked then.
