New suspension arms creaking?

Post by KEG » Sat May 14, 2022 8:29 pm

Just had the two front suspension arms replaced. After about 20 miles driving there is a creaking sound from the drivers side especially when pulling away. Can new suspension arms creak when new, or would there be another issue? It’s basically ok when driving. It’s worse when putting the car into the garage for some reason. It’s a Probe 24v 1996.

You are probably getting an echo when going into the garage so it sounds worse.

Check that all nuts and bolts have been correctly torqued as a start.

Did you change the drop links :?:
Have you got rubber washers on both sides of the forward bushes.
Normally, there’s only one with new wishbones, & you have to re-use the old ones :idea:
