Hai guys,
When I swerved off the road the other night, I hit what was almost a ditch at considerable speed (went through it though, didn't land in) and now I've got a squeaky noise coming from the front left.

Ended up off the road because somehow a whole bunch of road barriers made their way onto the road, was pretty crazy (cars off the side of the road everywhere). It was night time and there was heavy rain to make matters worse.

Suspension is fooked or what?

or a creak that has a crunch?

Yeah, bit like a creak I guess. But no crunch.

my shocks did it on one car and another had some lower bushes that solved it.

So, what are you saying? lol. Sorry, I know nothing about suspension. Except that when I hit that ditch quite hard, it screwed something up.

im not a great suspension-diagnostic person myself.
my ef had crook shocks and i fixed it and problem solved.
my ed had crook bushes and did a similar noise too, when i replaced the bushes it was also gone.
