156 JTD Suspension noise

It's turned cold and my 2.4 JTD Sportwagon doesn't like it !.

I've suddenly developed a loud creaking from the front right suspension.
I'm guessing all the bushes are fine because Bianco's MOT'd her last month and Gary told me everything was fine.
The anti-roll bar needs changing but that is a completely different knock all together.

Any suggestions as to what is causing it?
Does anyone else's suspension just get squeaky when it turns cold?
Another lad at work with a 147 has got exactly the same noise which started a couple of days ago when it turned cold.

Re: 156 JTD Suspension noise

Bushes are probably just dry, they'll creak then, or maybe they didn't check them properly on the MOT and they are worn out. Could also be wishbones, that was the problem with my suspension.

Re: 156 JTD Suspension noise
