A problem I've had for a while on my 159 (2009) is very creaking suspension coming from the front offside when slow moving and turning right (sounds like an old busted up car), from what I've read on here i think it could be the wishbones(?) I've jacked the car up and tried moving the arm to see if it's knackered, but I can't see anything. I've asked a couple garages to have a look and they've always said "there are so many joints in there it could be anything" (not helpful). I've tried spraying some lubricant on it which helped for a couple of weeks then came back.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? If I don't have to I don't really want to replace the upper and lower wishbones (just bought a house so pretty skint); I'm wondering if perhaps some powerflex brushes would help cure the problem?
Any help and advice greatly received!
