Hmmm 147 1.6ts Suspension Creek Squeek Bang Bang

Evening folks.

Just under one year ago (due to creaking and squeeking) I had new Rear Stub Axel Bushes and rear Transverse Arms!? (All know about these is that they cost 60, I'm looking at the bill)

Now I have more Squeeky creaking and a knocking from the back, I doubt they have gone again so soon, right?

So... What could it be this time would you say? I know there are upper and lower Wishbones, is this just another name for a Rear Transverse Arm!?

Also, where would be the best place to order parts from? I need to order the bits and fit them asap.

Thanks for any help

if cheap parts were used it is not that unusual for them to only last 1 year. take it to an MOT garage and ask them nicely to give the rear suspension a quick check, any garage will do this for free if you go down when they are not busy and have a bit of crack with them.
