      My sons Duster was creaking also. I tightened the upper control arm bolts a bit more and it seemed to help. Have someone bounce up and down on the fender while your under the car putting your hand on moving parts feeling for it. That's what led me to the uppers.

          Beautiful car, Yea grease the ball joints. I have found if you have someone push the car up and down you can put your hand on each ball joint and feel the one binding up.

          Were the lower control arms pivot bolt nuts and upper A-arms cam nuts torqued with the suspension under load?
          just a thought....

                  Ok up date,after greasing up it went away for a little.However it is the UCR BUSHING,when wrencking on it i could here the noise in the first place they are new Moog.I tighten them as much as i can with a wrench,much better now can only here it barely.How does the alignment shop get a torque wrench in there with the tire in the way?
