creaking front suspension

about 20 seconds into driving my front passangers side suspension starts to creak over small bumps on the road.
It sounds like a dry metal creak rather than rubber.

There is new bottom ball joints and new joints at each end of the track rods, all joints have been well greased and bushings checked and are ok.

anybody got any ideas for a fustrated UK owner.

Try wrapping the area of the sway bar that goes through the bushings with teflon tape.

Try checking the torque on the bolts that hold the brace from the hood latch down to the spring. I chased a noise like your hearing for a long time, until I torqued the bolts just a little while searching. Problem solved.

Good Luck,
Dave

Both 84c4 and Moffitt are correct, these may be the problem areas. To eliminate one from the other, raise the hood, then try pushing down on the front suspension. This help determine if it is the sway bar bushings as Moffitt stated (which is where my problem was) or in the hood bace as 84c4 stated.
