Worlds Squeakiest 166!!

I am starting to recall the joys of driving an Alfa, the constant work. Our 166 2.5 has at least 3 squeaks on it. One from the clutch pedal which I thought I had sorted with Teflon spray, UH UH. Both rear suspension areas have now started to groan. Same treatment did nothing. Have been under and had the wheels of and can't really see what is wrong. Anyone got any suggestions!?

Alfa's wouldn't be an Alfa without a few groans and squeaks...but i know what you are going through, they can drive you mad...i'm not that technically minded and thus can only think that maybe either your springs or shocks are getting a bit tired or you need your bushes looked at and or changed....

bushes would be the prime suspect....the creaks and groans are all part of driving a 166

I am not sure if the 166 is the same as the 156 but I have a feeling it is... The top front wishbones tend to squeak on cold mornings. It can sound like a squeak behind the dash, although mine sounds like someone bouncing on a bed.... I think they need replacing as oiling or greasing only works as a temporary measure.
