Hey all - I've noticed this fall that after my 06 S40 T5 has been sitting in the rain for a while, it gets a sort of creaking noise when I go over bumps. Seems to definitely come from behind the driver's seat, most likely the rear suspension? It's the AWD 6M version, but I doubt that makes any difference.

Any ideas on what noises could be moisture dependent back there?

Thanks a bunch

Mine has been doing the same, however, I know that my strut mounts need to be replaced. I'll inspect when I install the new ones. Could also be sway bar bushings.

Hmm.. the springs were replaced with shorter springs before I bought the car and, to be totally honest, I haven't checked them. It's been checked over by a couple local shops and they haven't found any issues. It's probably fine, just pretty annoying, as you can imagine. Let me know how the new strut mounts work for you!
