  • Rear suspension squeaks?

    Has anybody got this?

    My car has started to develop a squeaking sound from the rear just as i go over a speed bump. Its happening all the time now with just me in the car.

    I very very very rarely have more than just me and the other half in the car, but a few months ago i had a full load on and heard the same noises then all the time as we were driving. As i never have anybody in the back i just put it down to lack of use....?

    Anyways, is there much involved in sorting this? I'm due a 2nd service now soon but the car is out of warranty in Jan '10.

    Its a '08 reg with around 45k KM's (about 28k miles) by the way
