    Never used them with aftermarket suspension, I'd guess the only place is Nissan

    Remove them, torque the top nuts, see how you go.

    Could be the top mounts?

    If you want the gasket, it should still be available from Nissan as 54329-58S00. It's certainly available online.

    But I would follow Ben's guidance too, far more likely to be the top mount creaking as I don't know anyone who re-uses the gasket.

    Thanks for the advice good people, you were of course correct it was the top mount. After some digging managed to confirm the car had hsd dualtechs on it (previous owner said they were bcs!).

    Ordered a new top mount from drift works, chucked that on, issue resolved!

    Thanks again
