lower then 5 MPH when coming to a stop the passenger side will lightly creek, not loud enough to hear if you had quiet music on, but loud enough to here when you pull up to a light at night by your self.
i also have front end clunk.
i have replaced inner tie rods, about 15k miles ago, sway bar bushings and sway bar links recently. didnt fix anything,
the bushings on the tension struts look fine.
car has 89k on it, and those are the only front end replacements i have done.
any help or opinions are much appreciated !, thanks
brakes? brakes have sensor on them wich will start sqeeking when they are close to be thrown out.
Outer tie rods, and check your ball joints.
my front pads were creeking at low speeds. sounded almost as if the pads were falling apart. just needed to be taken out and cleaned. maybe try a servicing.
I had the same issue it was my upper control arms
In all seriousness, just spend $600 and replace everything that has not been replaced. You will put yourself in the loony bin trying to chase the noise. And as soon as you fix one thing, another will wear out. The aftermarket stuff is great and cheap.

you sure its a break issue? Try pushing down on the hood..if the creaking occurs its either upper control arm/ball joint (this is one assembly). or sway bar bushings.
I had mine replaced (front upper control arms) and fixed the creaking.
Im assuming it happens on yours during breaking because at speed to stopping weight transfers to the front? iunno. but yea check it out.

I've replaced inner and outer tie rods, tension struts, sway bar bushings and end links and it cured all my clunking issues. No noise whatsoever. I took it in for an alignment and after that, it started creaking in the passenger side when I brake or move up and down. I'm pretty confident that it's the lower control arm bushing where the strut connects. Squirted a little lube in there and the creak went away for a while.

ive got the same "creaking" issue and again only presents itself when braking.
ive tried pushing all over the front end and it only seems to be reproducible when braking...and my brakes are pretty damn new
