[DML] Re: FRONT END creeking noise

Since you had the service by DMCH and, before you do anything 
drastic, spray some silicone lubricant liberally onto and into the 
two rubber suspension joints securing the front control arm (some 
people call it the sway bar). They are right there in the front. 
Those things can get hard and squeak very loudly. This will cure it 
for a while. The best cure is to disassemble, install new ones and 
put some high-temp synthetic grease on them.
