    might be a broken spring there m8, best bet is to jack her up, remove the wheel and have a good look round the bottom of the spring

    i have pi 54/40mm lowering springs on mine they were around £120 posted off fleabay

    I had exactly the same - creaking over bumps from the nearside - last weekend changed the springs all round to eibach, the shox to B4's and the droplinks - noise gone now !!!!
    (also changed the front ARB bushes - not recommened for a 5 min job !!!)
