I bought a 2001 EX 4wd recently and I really do like it. It's going to be my commuter car for as long as it lives. Ever since I got it it has creaked front back driver side passenger everywhere. Sitting still moving the wheel or going over bumps, always creaks. Ill admit I have kind of thrown parts at it but these parts needed replacing due to age and torn boots anyway. I have tried new front and rear struts, new tie rod ends, new sway bar links front and back, new upper control arms up front. I have also tried to grease the sway bar bushings front and back. Nothing and I mean nothing has worked so clearly I have not isolated it.
