Re: Creaky Strut (steve850)

It's unlikely to be the spring seat on a '97. The spring seat issue was revised before then. But it could be a worn or loose upper mount.

Be sure that it's coming from the strut area. Stabilizer bar mounts can develop creaking noises as well.

You can diagnose some bushing creaks using WD-40, which won't hurt anything and will temporarily silence things long enough to pinpoint the culprit. Just don't spray it into the upper mount bearing or underneath joint boots.
