    I was about to say the usual "don't use TMS plates" but it seems they have revised them with more coverage, so it's a lot better than before. But it's still not as much as the Redish Motorsport...

    You could get under there and check, if it's truly the RACP that is creaking then more than likely you have some major cracks. FWIW I had 1 fairly long crack, and a split seam in the LR wheel well...
