could be many things. Loose lower ball joint, tie rod ends, drive shafts.
Or it could be coming from inside the transmission.

SOURCE: loud grinding noise
The best way to check this is to remove the serpintine belt from the engine (be sure to make note of how it is routed around the pulleys.......most cars have a diagrahm siticker to show the routing under the hood some where).then give each of the pulleys a spin by hand,the only pulley you shouldnt be able to turn by hand is the one on the very bottom of the engine(Crank Pulley).all of the others should spin freely...if any of them feel tight or have a funny feel to them that is likely your problem.....keep in mind if you continue to drive it the way it is the bad acessory will make itself known,melt the belt off of the car and leave you stranded....as i type im also thinking you could be low on power steering fluid does the cars noise change if you turn the wheels while sitting idling? if so check the power steering fluid.......If neither of these things seem to be the problem.It could be the a\c clutch making some noise.....if a\c is unused for a while rust can build up between the pulley and the a\c clutch.If so simply turn on the a\c for a while and the friction should remove the rust and remedy the problem providing the a\c is charged and functioning properly........
hope this helps...Good Luck!

hi it could be the shocks, but normally they don't creak, they would normally work as normal but bang if you hit a bump, this sounds more like rubber bushings have worn or are very dry, have a look under the front of your car, and see if you can see any rubber items that have either perished or have worn, you can try getting some wd40 or some spray lube and just hitting all the rubber items with this then trying it and see how you go, i cant be 100% for obvious reasons ( i cant hear it for the main one ) but that's what it sounds like, try that first ...hope this sorta helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for the quick solution. I will try - any recommendation is more than i have at the time, so thanks again."
I don't belive the axles are your major problem or concern. Sounds as though the diff bearing is going out, it's a fairly common problem. If your trans is the 604 (common name) a slight whine is normal from the transfer gears on that side you will also hear a racheting type noise from the solenoid block when it chamges gears. Get under vehicle and grad cv axle inboard joint, try to move it up and down, some movement is normal but should not be alot. You didn't mention how trans works?
