if its a squeek when going over slowly over speedbumps etc. It will be the bumpstops on the front suspension

Part 11 in pic



Want hurt to jack the car up as high as you can to expose it and clean it up with a rag then use plenty of copper grease on the top surface that rubs against the suspension plate. Also clean the suspension mount underside where it rubs.


Did that and also used some GT86 (water repellent, lubricant) to oil up the inside part as best as it can be without removing. Did this a while back since then no noises at all and it was a right old squeek

I cant say I noticed on mine driveway slopes in multiple directions so its always sitting on a funny angle. And with my small 120kg frame 95% in the car on my own I doubt the suspension ever sits level

The few times I've looked at it on near level ground it looks pretty much identical to me on both sites.

Only thing is to measure it and see as I recall this alteration for LHD cars being mentioned before

Thanks mate I'm just paranoid as I don't like
Hearing odd noises
I'd have to look further into the rear suspension
Thanks again

The rear suspension on my E46 was lower on the off side and that was common, but my E90 is level.

If it squeeks and rattles going down a rough road, spray silicon lubricant on all the door seals. I did this last weekend and its unbelievable how much difference it made - now silent in the same situation.
