Creaking Noise Passenger Side Front Area

Creaking noise passenger side front??
I have a creaking noise on the passenger side front, it doesnt make the noise when driving straight and on flat ground, sometimes when I turn ill hear it and always when im going over a bump such as a speed bump or uneven terrain. I replaced the upper and lower ball joints and both shocks on that side. the truck is lifted. Any ideas what this might be?

Re: Creaking Noise Passenger Side Front Area

Sounds exactly like what my truck was doing, and it turned out to be the spring bushings. I would still check cab mounts to be on the safe side.

Re: Creaking Noise Passenger Side Front Area

it could be any one of the bushings up front i would check them all. track bar, sway bar, springs, could be the u joint on the end of the axle maybe? also check the trans crossmember and skid plate bolts
