    Default Creaking from Rear Suspension

    Hi,

    I noticed that my car creaked when closing the rear doors, and initially thought it needed some WD40 on the door hinges.

    However, i now realise its from the rear-end. If i do the 'bounce test' by bouncing each rear corner of the car ... there is no 'bounce' but there is a terrible creaking from both sides.

    Is this a problem with the rear shockers? What else could it be ... and would it be covered under warranty? My warranty expires in a few day and my car only has 23k miles on it. I wouldn't have expected this type of noise (or wear and tear) at such a low mileage.

    Cheers!

    Could be rear shocks. TBH the standard shocks are shocking (excuse the pun)
