TOYOTA AVALON ABS PROBLEM

2001 Toyota Avalon • 262,000 miles

I have a very loud creaking noise comming from the rear suspension (Appears to be more on the left rear) when I travel slowly over a speed bump. It is also evident simply travelling along and hitting a small hollow in the road.
About 8-9 mths ago I had the rear tie rod bushes replaced.

I've had a look under the car but can't see anything obvious.
I'm guessing it may be one or both shock absorber struts.

Chances are it is one of the rubber bushings again. You can spray them with something like WD40 to see if that is the problem.

Thankyou very much for your prompt answer. I'll give the WD40 a go and let you know.

Sounds good

Thanks guys. Amazing what some WD40 will do. Not a murmer to be heard from the rear end.
Much obliged for your suggestion.
Bob.
