    Have you checked the front ARB bushes? I had a big creak over compressions and bumps that sounded like it was from the rear, but was actually cured by changing the front ARB bushes.

    My old ones looked fine, but were probably dry or worn smooth inside.

    I'd say the same as Tooks, I recently had a knocking noise which after changing a few parts also turned out to be arb bushes, they looked ok till I took them off and the inside of the bushes had small splits in them, they were pretty simple to change on my a3,

    I have a similar issue on mine. If I bounce up and down in the boot I get a lot of creaking from the rear suspension.
