my car is creaking when i come to a stop and pull away ...it also does it sometimes going over pot holes and bumps ...sounds like it might be coming from the back ....left of the car and occassionally from the front.

Creaking sucks ass. In my books it's an excuse to put a bolt in half cage in the car. :D

well loud enough to hear it over the exhaust and music .......only seems to do when the car has been driving for a while ..... but it feels and sounds so bad!. if it gets anyworse may have to have a serious look at finding out what it is.

is it like a scratching noise? or a metal-to-metal type noise? a sort of pinging creaking noise? is it some other noise? hehe

no its its a sorta deep metal sound ....a bit like a short door hinge creak but deep sounding almost a bit like a clunking noise but it is when the brakes or accerates .....if that explains it well enough
