Hi all,

I was wandering if anyone could help me with my ford focus. I've got a 5door 2000 1.8zetec with 51000 miles on the clock. (right hand drive).
It's had a full service last month, new brake pads at the front and brand new tyres.

When i turn to the left (and sometimes to the right) my front suspension seem to creak quite badly. But the main problem is the noise from the back. when i go over a bump, there is this creaking /rattling noise like the rear suspension is being strained too much. It also sounds like it goes all the way up through the left back door. When i pull up onto the curb, it also happens.
It feels /sounds like there suspension or anti-roll bar is being strained but i just dont know.

Also, when i press my brake and release it, there is this sqeeky noise from the rear brakes. I;m thinking this could be the springs the return the break discs but dont want to pull it apart till i got some leads on that.

Any help would be most appreciated as the noise is making me a mobile sideshow.

sorted it, something to do with the anti-rollbar mechanism.
