    jaguar s-type XS 2007 2.7 squeaky suspension

    Got an annoying squeak comming from the Nearside front suspension. most noticable on uneven roads and around town. Sounds like its behind the wheel somewere. Any suggestions ?

    When I found that video I recall watching my car being MOT'd and they used the usual lever to check the bottom joints on the front, told me there had been a bulletin years ago about the bottom ball joint shearing... So they didn't use the grips method, which they can't in this country, not many test bays use whel free ramps because if the chassis is corroded they need to be able to see it, lifting the car on the chassis wouldn't do at all so consequently there isn't the physical space to get the grips in.

    Although to be fair the "Wheel shaker" plate they have these days does load everything quite well.
