My el makes a squeaky/creak sound over speed humps and rough roads. Any ideas, front shocks were replaced 10000 ago.

cheers.

I reckon it is the upper control arm bushes.

If you remove the upper control arm and apply some rubber grease to the sides of the bushes, it should solve that problem.

most likely bushes, just grease them all (ive also heard graphite powder is good).
