Squeaky suspension

Has anyone any thoughts on why the suspension on my car squeaks so much. It's the first Alfa that I've owned and the first car that I've had that has made so much noise on bumpy roads (and there are quite a few in this part of Suffolk) The car is a 2006 147 1.9 JTDM Lusso that's got a full service history (51000 miles) and a newly new MOT. Any thoughts/ideas would be much appreciated as it's starting to drive me to distraction.

Upper wishbones are generally thought to be the culprit. Get some spray grease and give the upper bushes a good spray. If its them you should hear the difference. I have changed everything on the front of my GT and still had that problem. I got some grease out yesterday and gave it a bloody good spray and sure enough it has stopped. This only a temporary fix though. You need to remove them and get them fully lubed up with some red rubber grease.

Say thanks to Wlu.

About squeak, it can be either upper wishbones or ARB bushes. Are you planning to DIY?
