I have a creaking noise from the nearside suspension which seems to be getting worse, there does'nt seem to be any leak from the shocker. Any ideas? 1993 C220.

Lots of Mercedes!
I think itll be one of the rubbers thats dried up. I get this from the rear when people get out of the car...

It could also be a small stone stuck somewhere

I'd go with jaymanek on this one.A thought here could be to spray some oil around the rubber bush's or maybe some waxoil might be better?
