    check anti roll bar front drop links and anti roll bar bushes, both known for squeaking on the Astra

    you will need to give the roll bar links a good pull and twist them to see if they are still connected in their balljoints and either end, mine just popped straight out as they were very worn. to check roll bar bushes, you are best on ramps, follow the roll bar accross the back of subframe and you will see the rubber bushes, prise the roll bar and check for excessive play and movement within the bushes

    i would say the same, the ARB bushes on mine dryed out and worn so i changed them and the noise stoped!

    had the same problem on my mums 2001 vectra so just blasted them with WD40 and the noise went (bushes not drop links)
    silver + Black X smooooth = EpicWin!
