Creaking Front Suspension

When I go over large bumps, my front suspension creaks. Any ideas or is this normal?

06 Cobie w/ 30k. Lease buyback I got about a week ago.

Sounds like Control arm bushings or strut mounts

K, cause the car is pretty new and I doubt the struts are buggered already. Similar problem with an 94 intrepid but the struts were gone and you could tell by driving it. This car still drives properly.

I was just gonna start a thread about this............. when our cobalt drives over bumps it sounds like loose hubcaps coming from the front........ problem is we dont have hubcaps.............. I to thought it was control arm bushings.

--2005 Mustang GT various modifications ( 13.2 @ 108 )
--2006 Purple Cobalt LS.... Girlfriend's ride, which means i'm the maintenance man
