    Question creaking noise in front suspension

    I hear a "little creaking noise" when turning on slightly uneven surfaces at very slow speeds , in parking parking lots, and into my drive way. Would that be caused by the rubber on the ends of the leaf spring under the control arm(s), or are there other causes??

    Could be that, or control arm bushings rotting out. You need to get it on a lift to check

    I would say spring adjusters worn out, rocks under them, or broken off completely(unfortunately this is usually what I have experienced)
