Hi..there..

Normally if cv joint is going you'd get quite a louder clicking/claking noise as you full lock.or even jam up that wheel depending how bad the wear is...from what your saying regarding the creaking noise..id suspect likely you either a siezed balljoint or one of the bushings on the lower control arm is dried out and seized which can be quite common and thus can cause creaking noise over bumps or uneven road surfaces..maybe try spraying the bushings with wd-40 and then test drive to see if any change is heard..then you'll know for sure..these use seperate spring and shock set up..so maybe to inpect the spring seats and the top mount on the shock for any noise..
