Help Rear Suspension Crunch

I've had my '02 147 for a few months now and from day 1, it seemed to be a bit more than 'sensitive' going over speed humps etc. Normally, it's just me in the car and it drives fine and the suspension is silent. As soon as I have someone in the back or a few bags of shopping in the boot - I get a painful grinding / squeaking when going over any slight bumps. This gets even worse if going round a corner. Any ideas?

Re: Rear Suspension Crunch

Sounds like the rear disc guards are rubbing on the disc or there is some road grit in there, just pull the guards away from the disc.
When you do it if you jcak the car up wobble the back and fore to check for bearing wear...
