e92 335i - Front suspension

Hello Everyone,

I've got a problem with the front suspension whereby it makes a creaking noise going over speed bumps, and I dont know whether its just placebo effect, but the front feels a bit wobbly at times. I dont know whether the bushes need replacing, the car is at 103k miles now so alot probably needs replacing! Only started happening recently, I've had a good look at the springs and they look okay, no splits or cracks.

Before I take in to a mech, I'd just like to get some opinions on board.

Think thats most of the answer

But seriously, it could well be worn out bushes, spring pads or even just the damper rods squeaking on the 'unswept' part that they dont normally travel on.

Also, you may not be able to see adequately if a spring has failed.

Bite the bullet and get her booked into a specialist.
