Lift hood, observe strut mount while pushing car up and down. If you see movement of the top bolt and nut it could be loose or worn. Radius arm bushing could be loose. Do you mean stabilizer bar bushing when you say flow bar mounts? Also check rear stabilzer bar end links.

Creak, cluck, or light clunk noise coming from front passenger end during acceleration from a stop or slow speed.


It is hard to tell, without checking it. Iti could be the universal joint or CV, whatever you have, show it to a mechanic.

Creaking 2001 isuzu rodeo


our first creaking ever.
love that.( its haunted? LOL)


nobody can fix a car, if you can't demo it
not heard, can't fix it if it is not broken, rings true here.
when you do that, they are forced to guess, at your expense.
its an Implied GUE$$

first off you need to find out when it happens. exactly
first. (bounce car hard parked)?
only turning, only at bumps, when?
only moving, I guess
it can creak and be AOK,
for example the front stabilizer bar is mounted in rubber mounts
and will creak. and be ok. (so spray them)

why not buy a can of SILICON spray ,and spray
all things under car that moves,
all things, not the drive shafts.
there are swing arms, Arms, and many things to make noises in the the whole suspension systems.
it could be tie rods failing (bad that)spray them.
if have weeks to find it spray 1 at a time>? tedious.
any suspension shop in town knows what to do.
find one.
a real shop can use his electronic 4 channel stethoscope
and drive it and find it. but must FAIL for HIM.

see?

I have taken my 2003 GMC Envoy in to a GM dealer more than 6 times to be repaired for a very loud creaking noise in the front end. When I brake, the creaking noise starts. Or if I go over a bump, the...


My wife drives a 2003 GMC Envoy and has been complaining about this same creaking noise upon breaking or going over speed humps. I researched this topic on the internet high and low and tried everything I read to no avail. I was about to give up and then realized it could be the motor mounts since when you break or go over bumps the engine does have some movement. Sprayed the most interesting looking motor mounts I've ever seen with silicone spray and the noise was gone! My wife has been complaining for years about this noise and now looking back what a simple solution!. By the way my motor mounts where not worn out, the rubber portion of the mount just needed a little lube.

Front suspension noise-dull rattle-thumping sound,bumpy roads


look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over.
Good luck

Creaking sound from front passenger side of VW Polo 2003


the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers
