Found This post by a member on a diff site.
Thought I would let you know this issue has now been resolved. The reason for the delay was me being away and a few other things came up so it took me a while to drop the car back to them.
So I took it back to Peddars on the weekend as they decided to replace the rear spring to see if that fixed the issue. They jacked the car up and found there where a few rocks between the bottom suspension mount and the spring (apparently this can cause some noise and it seems it was an oversight by Holden not to add a rubber seal there). They cleaned the rocks off and added some more coil wrap to the bottom spring.
Went for a test drive with the manager and the noise was still there, he advised me that the noise wasn’t coming from the springs (previously when going for test drives with the manager the noise hadn’t been audible which was how it always seems to be when replicating an issue so I was glad that it was noticeable this time).
So they did a shock test on the car and put it back on the hoist to give the rear a check over. They found that the rear brake caliper was a bit loose and tightened it (but this may have just been because my pads are low). What they also found which seemed to be the culprit was that the Lynch Pin was loose (Think that’s the name of it). The area where the rear sway bar connects to the body of the car was loose on the left hand side and made a noise when moving it, this was tightened.
We went for another test drive and noise has now gone which is great news. Hopefully the lynch pin isn’t screwed and just needed a tighten, guess time will tell.
Thanks has to go to the guys at peddars for there time and patience.
