Disappearing squeak on Alcinia the 147

So I have my beautiful Alcinia about 2 weeks now and when I first got her the suspension squeaked and creaked over our beautifully pock marked Sheffield roads.

She had been sitting around for a few weeks whilst the previous owner fixed her up and it has been cold in the mornings also.

Now the weather's warmed up it has pretty much disappeared.

Not one to complain about a disappearing squeak of course but is this symptomatic of the suspension bushes on their way out or just due to the cold weather / few weeks of inactivity?

The reason I ask is that at the moment I just about have the funds to have the suspension done but don't want to be spending money unnecessarily.

Thanks all in advance.

I've got the same problem, my rear suspension creaked and groaned something terrible, but now the weather has warmed up it's stopped, so I'm a little confused as to what to do for the best.

Plus of course I've no idea which bushes were causing it now it's stopped
