Hi,
I have a 2000 Cadillac Catera that has had a creeky noise that comes from the passenger side of the car near the floorboard area. My mechanic said that sice my car needs new struts and strut mounts in the front of the car, that would be a good start. So after he installed my struts a few days ago, the creeky noise is still there but since the car is now more stable because of the new struts, it occurs less often but it's still there. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what this sound is caused from? Could it be ball joints or upper A arm bushings? Any help is well appreciated!! Thank you very much!!!

Check out the sway bar links. They are vertical bars about six inches long from the sway bars to the chassis.

yes check them , my went out like that and was creaking when i ran over deep dent on the road with over 40mph.
drive on rim to lift front and ask your friend to bouns that side, hold sway bat link at the same time while he bouns.
