Squeaky front suspension
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:26:50 PM »
Hi all newby here 1st post. Had my mk5 gti for around 6 months about 6 weeks ago it developed a squeaking/creaky front suspension. Been in garage twice to diagnose 1st visit the ball joint, top mount and strut was replaced which solved the noise. But few weeks later it appeared again went back in and the spring was replaced which solved the noise. But the creaky squeak has come back?? Does anyone have any ideas on what it can be? Thanks, Ryan.

Creaking/squeaking under what circumstances?  When steering at speed, steering at full lock, over bumps, when braking?  Ball joint, strut and spring replaced singly or both sides?

Hint: No info upfront generally attracts zero responses.

Noted, thanks pudding. Creaking happens at lower speeds driving straight and cornering. Since my post it's been in 2 more times. Both top mounts, both springs,  both ball joints,  both struts and most recently (yesterday) replaced all front subframe bolts and control arm bushes and anti roll bar bushes regressed. Drove it from garage and as usual after having work done no noises. Put a few miles on it today and the creaking is coming back??
