Doolie, mine was doing the same thing and it was indeed the upper wishbones. Have a search as there is loads of suspension info on this site. Good luck!

Re: creaking suspension 147

Yeah, upper wishbones are the usual culprit.

Alfaworkshop has a handy Alfa 147 Upper Wishbones Change Guide.

Someone was saying that shop4 parts have special offer on them this month, though I dunno if they ship to your neck of the woods.

Re: creaking suspension 147

yep, it's the upper wishbone bushes. You can't replace the bushes so you have to replace the whole part, it's not expensive antway. Mine started to creak on one side then bboth sides started to creak and thats when i decided to replace them. I replaced them myself and it's not a difficult task if you know a little bit about cars and you have the correct tools. I posted on here bout 2 weeks before after replacing them with couple of pix.
