    Default Front End Sounds Like Squeeky Old Bed

    Hi Guys

    Right i have Noticed on my 2004 3.2 V6 Elite when i go over speed bumps etc... the noise is horrible that comes from the front suspension sounds like a old rusty squeeky bed. My Friend has a 2004 2.0CDI and has had a listen and says his makes the same noise. Is it just because its ****e VX Suspension or is it something i should be worried about?


    Is there a good suspension upgrade without spending £1000's?

    Mine does the same. I will have a search for the how2.

    When it rains, the squeaking stops, it's bliss going over speed bumps when wet!
