Strange jacking incident/creaking

When rotating the wheels a couple of weeks back, using the normal jack, the car didn't seem to settle properly on its rear wheels when lowered back down.
They were sitting at a funny angle when looking at them from the rear.
I then reversed off the driveway, there was a loud 'creak' noise and the car seemed to settle.
I'm now getting a creak from the rear passenger side every time passengers get in/out.
Anyone come across this before and any pointers??

When to suspension was at full drop when you jacked it up check none of the springs have moved out of their seats, or spring insulator rubber seats hasnt moved.
The springs shouldnt displace and become slack but if someone has fitted lower/shorter springs at sometime they can do if the correct adjustments arent made to the stops/shocks?

Definitely standard Cooper suspension, I know the woman who had it from new.
Think I need to whip the wheel off at that side and have a look around.
