    Hey guys. I've noticed a strange creaking noise that sounds like it's comming from the passanger front suspension area. Sometimes it sounds as if it whining while I'm driving. But it also seems to be related to speed, 'cos the creaking slows down as the car does. Could this be an ARB bush?

    Thanks in advance

    Yep more than likely, unless the Borrowers are living in that area or there is a mouse hiding out there :)

    Lol, could very well be :)
    Would the bushes cause a whining noise though - or could this be something else (other than a rodent)?

    A whine when driving is normally the wheel bearing. Is it better or worse when turning?

    Does sound like a bearing.... Try jacking the car up and then try to see if the rim gives a little if you try to wiggle it about.
