Creaking sound?

Whenever i turn and accelerate (DD) i hear some sort of creaking sound that sounds like its coming from somewhere near the control arms or wheel.
I honestly have no clue what it is. Might someone inform me? And is it something vital that needs to be fixed?

Re: Creaking sound?

most likely some bushings (specifically: upper control arm bushings) that are making noise or possibly a strut. if you don't notice any decrease in performance then its probably not critical this very moment but you should look into it and try to figure out what the problem is

Re: Creaking sound?

Quite often as the bushings go hard they will creak. This isn't neccessarily a bad thing, but it might be worth looking into a new bushing kit at some stage. (this is always a good idea regardless, bushings deteriorate over time and chances are they haven't been replaced in the 10+ years your car has been on the road)
