    Default Vectra C .Suspension (or whatever) creaking.

    Just spent 2 hours reading various messages on this common problem. I have a 03 2.2 Elegance auto.
    Have sprayed wd 40 on the RADIATOR MOUNTING SPRINGS (see all the threads on this site on this ) and it b****y well works ! 6 months of noise gone - several attempts to get rid of car now suspended ! Thank you all who commented !

    Glad you have got it sorted. You wouldn,t think a radiator mount would creak would you. Sounds daft but it is true they do creak.

    I resolved my frontend's noises with replacing the dog bones, and the antirollbar bushes.

    Especially the worn arb bushes make a loud creak when hitting a speed bump. Cheap parts, and easy fitting alltough not much space.

    Worn dog bones (arb link) make more of a rattle when driving over rough roads.

    My radiator bushes make no sound what so ever. They are very loose tough, i might put some sikaflex in to make them a better fit.
