Took my Porto on a long drive on the Friday bank holiday weekend.
Travelled almost 200 miles upto Colwyn Bay and the same mileage back. Thus almost 400 miles in a day.

Whilst it was a hot day, the car performed very well in a mixture of traffic including stop-start at the M5/M6 intersection which took 45 mins to get through on the way back.

However, only a couple of miles from home, I became aware of a loud groaning/creaking noise seemingly coming from my rear suspension???
Not sure if it was related to heat build-up, but clearly needs sorting out.

The car now makes a groaning noise if I push it sideways at the rear whilst stationary.

Rear subframe bushes? Are they the original rubber?
Rear shock absorber bushes?
