Creaking Sound

I have this sound coming from my rear passenger wheel. Not quite sure what it is. The car has all new brakes and a new bearing on that side.

I was thinking it might be the cv joints on the axle locking up but i'm not sure if it would make that kind of sound if that happened.

Wondering if anyone could shine some light on this situation.

You've got to give us just a tad more information. What are you doing when it makes the noise? All the time, just occasionally? Any other details will help.

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

It seems to do it randomly. Sometimes when i make a left turn. I havent really heard it when i turn right.

The top of my street is a culda sac and when i turn hard left to come back around it will do it when i am coasting down the street after i straighten the wheel out. With no throttle at all.

Sometimes when i make a fast left hand turn at a decent speed it will feel as if the passeneger rear wheel is hopping and it will sort of make a creaking sound.

Thats the best i can describe it.

Do you have new rotors back there or just new brakes? If the rotor is out-of-round it can scrub the brakes in turns (usually in the direction of the worn rotor) and can sometimes cause grabbing when the rotor is heated and even further out of spec.
As far as hopping, maybe a little too much gas? Mine seems to break loose easily when turning and accelling (especially up hill a little) but that's on crappy rubber.

The rotors are not that old but they could be out of round. They are cross drilled and i put all four on at the same time and the fronts are not warped at all.

The wheel hop is the new rear i think just getting broken in.

Is it possible that the cv joints on the axle could be binding?

Does it do this when it goes over a bump? or hit a dip? or braking? or durring acceleration? or just randomly? These are things that help diagnose it.

It seems to happen sometimes during braking and acceleration. When i brake it only happens right before the car completely stops. Acceleration it really doesnt seem to do it any specific time.

Over bumps the passenger rear tire makes a wierd sound almost like the wheel is loose but its not. The wheel bearing is brand new on that side so i dont think thats it.

Sway bar end link bushings? They tend to just up and disappear on these cars, and will make a nice rattling noise after it happens.

Mhmm thats my bet sway bar bushings..... try greasing them.... see if it helps any... definatly couldn't hurt, plus while your under their you might see a dry rotted bushing that could be causing this, it sounds to me like a bushing in the rear suspension.

Did you tighten the bolts from the knuckle to control arms with the car on the ground? I've heard that if you don't, the bushings will not have the proper preload on them. Might cause some creaking. I say this because you said the bearing was replaced and had it off.

Every bad CV joint that I have seen made a loud popping noise, so I don't think that's it. Granted they were on FWD cars.
