Sub Frame bushes

I have a creak at the back of the car when the car is at an odd angle ie:- when I turn off the road onto my drive which is quite steep, ARB bushes, drop links were changed within the last 3 years, and the top mounts, coffin arms and diagonal arms are less than a year old.
I'm thinking it may be sub frame bushes, any other ideas :?:
TIA

I had a noise, a creak sometimes or a tinny 'plink' that defied identification. It started as occasional, then became every time I pulled away or accellerated from low speed.

Rear sub frames were removed & cleaned plus the subframe cross member. Everything was checked & the ARB drop links changed. Eventualy the cross members were taken off and cleaned ( a fair bit of crud under them ) and all now good.
 
...most likely the rear cross members need to be tightened up; these needs to be tight! Pinging should stop...
 
Thanks for the input, I'll get on the cross members👍
 
...I spent bloody ages trying to identify 'this' noise and then spoke with Iain (demort) whom suggested ensuring the rear subframe cross members were really tight...so I removed them, cleaned them and really did them up tight...problem solved...man's a genuine legend with an encyclopedic knowledge of Porsche :thumbs:
