    Default What's this suspension noise ??

    Hi just wondered if anyone can help me pinpoint a slightly alarming noise from the front suspension of my 2.0 DTI. Basically whenever I go over a speed bump or up the slightly raised kerb to my drive there is a loud metallic creaking sound coming from the front of the car. If I had to analyse it I'd say the noise is worse going 'down' a speed bump rather than 'up' it. I'm not in the habit of going fast over these things, 15mph tops. In fact the noise seems worse the slower I hit them. It's been like it for a couple of months but now the noise is getting louder. I had new front springs fitted about 8 months ago so I'm sure it can't be related to that.

    TIA

    anti roll bar bushes most likely cause, they wear with age and get bigger, bar then slips in the bush causing the creak. recommend do drop links at same time as they need disconnecting to do the bushes, u will feel big difference in handling afterwards. search on here there are several posts on here about how to change them.

    Thanks. Drop links look easy but how hard is it to replace the ARB bushes?
