Amazing Massachusetts roads... This weekend I hit a huge bump and checked all around. No bubbles no bent rim. The shocks looked fine too no leaks and all modes functioned.

Today I realized that when I was stopped and turning left, it made the worst creaking sound. I don't think it's the CV joints because it does it when stopped. Is it the strut bearing?

Can't view 'private' video.

Strut bearing does sound like the culprit, based on your notes.

hey mine's doing that too, I only notice it when i pull out of my driveway. My guess is strut bearings.
Whatever it is, it's scaring the crap out of me. I have the front spring seats and strut bearings already ready to put in, but I don't have the time to do it myself with college and work. I just need to check with my shop and see how much they'd charge.

If you can't do it yourself it should be much to replace, Probably an hr 1/2 in labor.

I have a little bit of creaking, I always just guessed it was the strut mounts. Sounds like what I've got except alot louder, the bearing is probably completely shot.... They're not terribly expensive, though.
