hay all

there is a Squeeking/ lite rattle noise from the front lh and rh side of the car...

this only happens with going over very small bumps.. over Speed humps or drive ways does not do it.......

those reflective humps that divided road if i hit on of this its a loudish squeek....


could it be something like front sway bar bushes or more on the lines of ball joints ????

You know what, I've had 3 EL's and 1 EF do this exact same thing to me over my driving lifetime...
Never really bothered to get it checked out or diagnosed, It just made me avoid bumps and potholes even more, which is good :)

But I always assumed that it was the bushes, more precisely the front suspension arm bushes, and/or the suspension itself (shock) is worn..

(Not 100% on that, like I said I never got it looked at, but It happened in all of my cars so your not alone)

EDIT:
On an afterthought, all of my cars that did/do it are lowered, perhaps it has something to do with that (No camber adjustments made)
