    Default Bit of an odd one

    Hi all,
    Got a wierd noise, sort of a creaking/mabe a rattle but not really... like something's straining under load when pulling away or getting moving at slow speeds,.. really no idea what it could be, sounds horrible have been aware of it for a week or so when driving, then heard it from outside when seeing wife off this morning could it be?

    hope some one has an idea cos sounds a bit worrying
    (sorry for oblique description but is hard to describe)
    thanks in advance

    Is it just in the morning after the car has been sitting in the cold all night ?

    Or is it all the time

    Guess it could be mainly in the morning but i'm sure i've had it at other times in the day? just such a strange shuddering type noise but don't really feel it if that makes sense, just don't want summink to fall off

    Could it be the radiator mounting bush,s. They are known to creak. So are the Anti roll bar bush,s.

    how bad would they sound? seems like a bigger noise than those, won't (i hope) be bushes as just recently done.

    thought it could be something loose under car, but no rattle or tinny clatter from exhaust etc..

    Could be the old faithful spring problem, as the car pulls away the weight is shifted - stretching the front ones and compressing the rear. also does it do it during braking??

    doesn't feel like suspension, again have only recently fitted eibach/bilstein set up plus all bushes, so would be suprised. Haven't noticed it when breaking but will listen out for it
