Creaking noise I used to get from the front axle

Does anyone hear creaking noise from the front axle when go over slowing hump at slow speeds?
If so, you need to replace two rubber sleeves from front anti-roll bar.
It seems to be very well known issue with Vectra C.
GM part number:
350148 for 24 mm anti-roll bar
350145 for 25.2 mm anti-roll bar


Just have it sorted out at my Croma so now I can't hear it anymore.

I have this problem. I thought it may have been my drop links or something. I'll have to ask my husband when he is free to have a good look at the car for me to work out what is making the noise.

Just make sure they use grease (GM: 1970206) so these sleeves won't creak longer.
Heard from one buddy this is one of the most common failures at Vectras.
