    08 base GP. i have a creaking in the left front when accelerating and braking. it has gotten worse over the last month or so. ive been under that side prying and pushing while doing LCAs and wheel bearings and cant make it creak to locate WTH is making the sound.
    anyone ever experience this and know what i might want to check out?
    it was occuring before LCA and wheel bearing replacement, too.
