I put some super lows in my Au a couple months back and now the passenger side seems to be squeaking/creaking a fair bit.

How would I go about getting rid of this?

Thanks

graphite powder into the spring seat should diagnose that it is infact the spring that is creaking. But lithium grease is the long term solution. The white grease. you can get it in a spray pack. could also be the upper control arm bushes, or almost any other bush in the front end ans you have changed the geometry of everything.

Forgot to mention its the rear passenger side l. Will try the graphite powder followed by lithium grease if that's the case.

Thanks mate!
