    Suspension creaks

    I get really loud creaks coming from my mk4 when i go over speed bumps, mainly from the front suspension. It did this on the crappy saxo i had before, how do i get rid?

    The same problem has been posted in the tech section, and i think the only real cure was to change the rubbers of the suspension (i think!)?

    This appears to be getting quite a lot of coverage at the minute, on here, and I also raised it on z22se.co.uk, and a lot of people seem to be experiencing this when it's cold.

    Sounds like the bushes to me. Had this on my Veccy, got them sorted under warrenty.
