Question about 2001 Dodge Durango
There is a creaking noise when I turn my steering wheel but only when I turn it left. I can also feel it in the wheel as I turn it. This happens at any speed and the fron shocks also make a creeking noise when I go over speed bumps or even just little bumps. The sound seems to be getting louder as the days go by. The vehicle still drives fine and nothing seems different, it just makes that horrible sound. I need to find a solution quick because it's driving me nuts.
There's a chance that the ball joints need grease. This should help, however once they have started to make noise like that due to lack of grease, they usually have gone bad. Replacement may be the only remedy. Hope this helps.

Sounds like your lower ball joint seem to be going out on that side but my advise would be to change both of them. and the creaking you talk about on that side not the shock you got an upper control arm on the truck and it seems to be that the bushings are creaking. so either changing the bushings or completely changing the upper control arms will help with that noise. hope this helps you.

Check your upper and lower control arm bushings
