    will the screws turn? if not they might just need a good impact to the head to shock them... sounds stupid but thats the technical term...

    Rear suspension - might be a broken spring/dampner or just a leaking dampner? you might want to get it checked...

    As Jon says, are the bolts seized?

    If your around Stoke give us a call and we can have a (very) quick listen to the noise. Bit busy ATM

    yeah the bolts are seized and i think someone has rounded them off too bad times!

    And yeah suspension is standard and it normally only does it when I go over speed bumps or drop off a kerb... I'm hoping its not tooo serious and i want to lower her soon anyway

    if they're rounded the best thing to do is to drill them out and replace with new.

    In my experience cheap and coilovers don't mix well - I said this to Biscuit before he got his and now his rear suspension creaks.

    He gets told "told you so!" every time he mentions it.

    It does look well now though
