As the heading says really, 2004 w203 c220 cdi estate.

Been having a squeal from the rear left for a few weeks now, normally went under braking.

Had new tyres done sat and tracking done on Saturday. Now the wheel is pointing right way seem to be getting a squeal from front left also. This doesn't go under braking.

The other which has got a little worse in recent weeks is from the front left again suspension area, almost sounds like when you go over a lose drain cover, but i'm not just bumps etc in the road. Also sometimes hear a noise when steering at very low speed like a click when I'm reversing onto my drive.

Any ideas?

Brakes and news discs were fitted 3 months.

Bottom swivels or drop links from the roll bar, bottom swivels the most likely

Could be the steering rack ends, the swivels you cant see unless you remove the rubber gaitors.

The swivels get water in them and levering with an long iron bar will show up any play

Would that explain the clunk?

Thank you, any idea on the squeal? Wheel bearings, if so how's best to check them?
