Creaking fixed and back

Hey all.

Been having a creaking noise from the front left wheel area when turning left at low speed from a full stop. It’s especially noticeable when I exit my garage which requires going up and turning left hard. Took it to the SC. Here’s what they did:

Correction: Link - Fore - Lower - Front - RH (Includes Alignment Check) (Remove & Replace)

Correction: Links - Front Suspension - Lower - Aft - LH/RH (Remove & Replace)

While they were at it, they noticed my front air coils were leaking and replaced both. They also did an alignment. The creaking was gone at first but is slowly coming back. Plus, my car now pulls to the left.

Especially since I’m out of warranty and paid several thousands for this repair, I’ll be returning to the SC of course. However, I know this is not an uncommon issue.

My questions:

- Has anyone successfully fixed this creaking problem because if no one has, I‘ll stop throwing money at the problem (and ask for a refund).
- How good is the alignment on your X? Surprised that this is something they couldn’t get right.
