SOURCE: Front Noise!
I have a 2000 Honda Prelude SH with about 110k on it. I have been having all sorts of squeaks from the suspension over the past 1 or 2 years. It was the front ball joints that were found to be causing the noise. I also had an upper control arm and a tie rod end that was squeaking. The reason for the squeak is the sealed design of the ball joints and the fact that they cannot be lubed, and eventually just wear out. I could get it to make the noise by pushing the car up and down at the affected corner. I've been disappointed in the way the suspension on this Prelude hasn't really held up well. I've never had so many suspension components wear out on any of my cars before. But, your issue definitely sounds like ball joints to me. Those are the same symptoms I was having.

It's unlikely to be a ball joint on an '05. Make sure the mechanic jacks the car up under the lower control arm then checks radial and axiel (up and down). The sway bar links are bad about making noise.

Hello! When you had the struts replaced, were the strut mounts also replaced? If not, these are often the source of creaking, or clunking noises. However - this could also be from worn or loose sway bar bushings, or outer tie rod connections. All of these can be surmised by a mechanic within a matter of minutes.
I hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!
