My 2.8 Cruising cabin has started to make a noise at the front when I go over a traffic calming bump at slow speeds (5 mph). The suspension makes a significant creak which wasn't there previously-it is only 12,000 genuine miles but is a 1998 model. It only gets used once a week at the moment, but was fine going to france last summer. Anyone got any ideas before I seek a garage for help?

Try silicon spray over your suspension rubbers grease upper & lower ball joints.

Ours is worse Sad  only squeaks at low speed when brake is applied. Brake off no noise. It's definitely suspension type noise but a bit hard to check as I can't find anyone to lie on a skate board while I drive around... I don't know where all the daredevils have gone Smile
