    Default Rear creaking/cracking noise

    Ok for a while now i've had this annoyinh creaking/cracking noise coming from the rear.

    It's very easy to demontrate, simply drive over a nice high speed bump slowly, front is quiet as a mouse (had front drop links replaced) but rear creaks and groans.

    Checked by 2 VX dealers with 'no fault found' so now i'm at the stage where I'll be doing this myself if I can (wont be done under warranty now anyway).

    Anyone know what to look for? Is is the rear trailing arms thingys? Antiroll bar joints??

    If anyone has any advise i'd be very grateful. My baby has now done 60k, still runs sweet as a nut, just this annoying rear noise.

    I have a similar thing although it's more of a muffled clunk. I can't find the source after looking. Seems to hold the road ok though.

    Jack up rear, remove wheels and remove shock..the offending one on mine was pretty much solid(couldn't compress it) takes about 10 mins to remove,test and refit.

    Mine sounds more in the car than shocks. I'll do some testing when I get a spare 5 mins.
