Default Creaking noise..! Please help.!

I have a 2005 Magnum RT. I have replaced all of the front control arms, both sides, tie rod ends, and sway bar links. 3 months later and the front end is creaking at slow speeds, and steering feels somewhat loose. The noise is driving me crazy. lol. Any suggestions?

The ball joints and control arms are one unit on this car. Sorry i thought I included that. So unless I got a faulty replacement it shouldn't be the ball joints. That was my first thought as well but they are just about 4 months old. ?

Can you identify which side the noise is coming from? Sorry, it is extremely difficult to diagnose sounds over the internet. Did you replace with OEM or aftermarket? Maybe try lubricating all the bushings really well and see if that lessens the sound, that way you could narrow it own.

I know it's hard to tell. I just thought maybe someone would have an idea. It's definitely more from passenger side. Oem parts. I've lubed them and still have noise. I thought maybe rack bushings? Or something may be over tightened?
