Well based on the limited info..then i can only tell you what areas needs to be checked ideally... First off you need to check the ARB links.those on pretty much the majority of cars can cause very similar noises due the balljoints on the link drying out or just seized can remove them to check it certainly be looking into that..also lower control arm bushings and balljoints for signs of water ingress if any of the rubber has split or cracked then this can alot corrosion to set in resulting in partical seziure and creaking over bumps in the road...also check lower spring seat on the struts....Unless you can create the noise by bouncing the car manually at the side the noise seems to emit from then you need to the checks as above...Is this any help
