Looks like my girl is giving me some surprises since she's hit 100k. :p

In the past week, major creaking has developed in the control arm area when turning the wheels. Happens when I turn to the left and the right.

Time for new control arms?

It might also be the tie rod ends. The will do that if they are dry.

I had the same problem, it was my tie rod ends. My CV joints also went, but they made a clicking noise like all other CV joints. I would recommend fixing any clicking or popping as soon as possible. I waited and had to replace both halfshafts, $400 approx. each side. not including labor and the other crap. Tie rods, thats my diagnosis.
