Suspension sound

OK so 2-3 weeks ago there was a sound coming form the rear right side of the car, sounded like the bushings messed up. I got it checked up and it was the bushing in the LCA. So i got 2 brand new Megan performance LCA with brand new bushings and it was perfect. Tonight i started to hear a similar sound from the same side, could it be the bushings? kinda impossilble since i have brand new LCA and bushings?
what do you guys think?

How much did you spend all together in changing the LCA's w/ the bushings? I want to change my LCA's, just wanted to know how much its going to cost me.

brand new bushings (even if they are the rubberized ones and not poly) should not make any sound when pressed and installed properly.

are you sure its the exact same sound you hear from the very location as last time?

sometimes....you can hear a squeak from the springs too when you go over a bump.

urethane are noisy.. but im pretty sure megan doesnt use urethane.

But its a simple solution.. get under the car and look at the bushings. While your there I would check out the trailing arm bushing as well.. very common.

I have poly bushings in my tubular LCA's on my Cutlass. As long as they've been on they havent squeaked once. Just gotta grease them up good.

You replaced the the LCA right? The sound could also be coming from the trailing arm bushing. My 98 had the same problem and it was the trailing arm bushing. I believe Honda also had a TSB out from them becuase it was such a common problem.

I have a knock in the same side. Also replaced my LCA's with megan racing ones. But my coilover has leaked all the fluid out and the shock is causing the knocking in my rear. Just a suggestion to look at you shock too.
