    Squeaky suspension

    over the last few days i have noticed that when ever i go over speed bumps the front of my coupe starts to squeak. it only happens when its wet and when im going over the speed bumps. the car handles as normal. anyone got any idea what it could be before i take it to vauxhall..

    most common thing to make a squeaking over bumps it your anti roll bar bushes

    Had it on mine and the dealer 'greased the roll bar' - it didn't work cos they should have greased the roll bar bushes :roll:.

    I did it my self (as well as clean off the pointless grease) and it's OK now.

    they are pretty expensive to get done by a vauxhall dealer. if car under 3yrs/60k then it'll be warranty. vaux time for fitting anti roll bar bushes is 3.4hrs. the bushes are only 2.50each. there not a hard job to do really. so i would have a go yourself.
