Default Loud Creaking Noise when Turning Left

Hey everyone, well I'v tried searching the problem but nothing was useful. I have this really loud creaking noise coming from somewhere in my suspension when I turn left. Im not sure what it is, has anyone ever had this problem?

Check swaybar bushings and LCA bushings.

wanna bump this cuz i just started having a similar issue. i put new endlinks on and it makes noises turning left. i left one bushing off the bottom of each link to get the bolt on the top since there was hardly enough thread to get the bolt on top would this cause it? it sounds as if the links are moving

Ball joints? When they dry up they can get pretty loud.

I doubt that was a good idea. It is easiest to install the endlinks with the suspension loaded (i.e. wheels on the ground). I know it sounds crazy. But if you jack the car up to install them it can be a pain to get the nuts on with all the bushings. Sometimes you can take some channel locks and compress the bushings enough to get them started, but i think you are supposed to tighten them down with the suspension loaded.

I figured it out yesterday. I had the suspension loaded with the front on ramps and put the other bushing in. Had to compress the hell out of it all to get the nut on but were all good now.
