    So After taking my car out of the garage today, I noticed that the front suspension is creaking and groaning really badly. Anyone else having this issue? Car is already having to go in due to my boost sensor flipping out and going full boost and then not allowing me to have any boost for days at a time, so I will have them look at it then, but I get the feeling they are just going to play the "modified" game with me as usual.

    A spring seat that can be heard half a block away? Possibly small squeeks, but 3-5 second long groans? Seems unlikely.

    Which part of your videos is half a block away exactly? The only time I had suspension noises when turning the steering wheel was when my driver side spring seat went bad. There was also noise going over slight bumps as well. Mine was more rubber sounding though.

    Other comments at the time were bump stops and sway bar bushings.

    By half a block I'm talking about how loud the noise is in person(Definitely wasn't going to go out and film it, it's freezing outside lol). It's loud as all hell. Actually scared the crap out of me when I went to back out onto the road, and I had people looking over after it was doing it in the parking lot lol. It's definitely not a small creak, it's quite loud.

    I'm wondering if it's a bushing by how long the groans can be carried out over slower bumps etc. And Yea, to me it almost has a mechanical/metallic sound to it.

    Yea, to me that's far more rubbery than my noise. more like a squeek. Mines more of a mechanical/metallic groan.
