    confused front bush?

    i keep getting a really bad creaking noise when i go over bumps and speed bumps in the road, i've checked all the usual even radiator mounts..

    took it to a friend who's a vauxhall mechanic and he seems to think it could be a front bush or rear bush he's not sure

    anyone experience these problems before??

    any thoughts

    cheers in advance

    Cars done 60k, only noisy when I go over the small speed humps. The ones that are near junctions/traffic lights. I hear a clonk when I go over them slowly, otherwise its fine.

    Liam,

    I had the same and also thought it was the anti roll bushes, turned out it was the rear bush of the front wishbone arm (think thats what its called)
    £37 each and quite easy to do. Sorted the noise completely.
