I have a 2008 Saturn Aura XE. The front susprnsion makes a Very loud creeking noise. I have sprayed all the rubber connections with "Teflon" inpregnated oil and it stops for about 2 miles then it is back. I have done the same with spray white lithium grease and got the same results.I have run it through the car wash with the "undercarriage wash" the same results.Thanks,Keith

Hi,front suspension creaking noise is almost always faulty ball joints. to check them you will need a long prybar/steel bar/2x4 and a helper.jack front end up where the front tires are 1-2" off the ground. Have your helper place the end of the prybar/steel bar/2x4 between tire and ground and lift up on it while you watch the balljoints. if there is more than 1/16" play in upper or lower balljoint, replace them

I tested the balljoints as you suggested and they are okay. I loosened the body mounts and jacked -up th body and sprayed lube in them - still creaks. I used a stethoscope to listen to the stuts - no noise.
