Recommended Posts

I'd have a look at suspension top mounts and look to see if there's any corrosion on the springs. Could be any part of the suspension really. You're not triggering traction control are you? Can you see the little yellow flash of boringness when you do it?

Sorry to bring up an old thread, I've been experiencing a similar issue. It sounds like an horrendous creak when turning on inclines and flats. Its getting worse I'm confident it's not my drop links as these were changed when I had my coilovers put on. I've been reading alot of people mention the anti roll bar as the culprit, is it as simple as sliding the bushes across and greasing?

It's most likely a dry joint on your droplinks. If the seal has split and water has got in, it will cause the balljoint in the droplink to rust which causes the horrendous sound. I changed my ARB mounts for poly bush ones as we were convinced that was the issue. Turned out to be my aftermarket droplinks (TD ones) , well one of them. Was difficult to see as well. They had been on for around 30K miles. Changed to Whiteline ones, sorted.

Fortunately enough I have a spare pair. I'll replace them first, hopefully it fixes the problem as the noise is becoming unbearable. Thanks for the advice.
