Anyone have a picture of where they all are? My suspension is creaking a bit (notice it mostly when getting in and out of the car) and I want to lube things up.

Mine creaks a bit from enter and exit also. Seems to be coming from the rear suspension on the drivers side.

Will be interested to see if there is an easy fix.

I never notice it when driving.

Creaking comes from your control arm and/or sway bar bushings. Nothing to lube, just replace if needed.

I used a bit of rubber grease on all of the rubbers (they sell this stuff for assembling brakes and hydraulics) - it's liquid enough to get in- works a treat! - don't use ordinary grease - will stuff up the bushes

Does it only happen if you have the emergency brake on? I think the creak on mine when entering and exiting is caused by the emergency brake, it does not occur if the brake is off. I haven't done anything about it though.

That's a good question. I hadn't made that connection. Will check after work. Thanks!
