    Creaking sound after lower control arm replacement

    So I put the car on ramps and broke loose both of the bolts then tightened them back up. Also gave the bushings a couple squirts of silicone spray. I thought the noise was gone but then it came back when I was braking coming down a hill. I don't think the noise is as bad as before.
