    Last week I've noticed a squeak coming from the left hand side of the car whenever I go over bumps and at first it sounded like it was from the inside. It's getting worse though and when I bounced the rear N/S of the car I can hear the suspension making a creaking sound. Could this be the shocks or could it just be the rubber? I'm wondering if there's a way of knowing for sure, the only thing I'm aware of is checking for them leaking.

    Car has done 68K miles, I'm guessing this is normal considering the state of the roads.


    Cheers



    EDIT: I think it's the front, when I go over speed bumps it squeaks when the front mounts the bump. I don't think it's shocks though, perhaps drop links or a rubber seal somewhere. Will have to get it up on the ramps.

    Ah, drop links! I had to do those on my 6th Generation! Strangely, last week I went to the jet wash and did a thorough blast in that area and the squeak has now gone! Maybe something had lodged in there?
