creaking noise front end of suspension

Hey guys so I have the release series and it's been about a month now but recently my front end is making this creaking noise ...if I open the door nd sit nd get back up u hear it nd if I'm turning like into my drive way nd one of the wheels is on the sidewalk while the other is still on the road u hear it...but if I drive over a speed bump there's no noise ....It only makes the noise when one side is higher/lower than the other .....could it be the lowering springs aren't sitting properly

If you changed the springs ...... that would be the first place I'd look.

Maybe the people who put on the springs should check it out ..... ??

The release series comes with TRD lowering springs, so I'm banking on something is messed up (could still be the springs, but the problem description isn't very good).

OP take it to the stealership

This guy has the same sounds I bet!
I will say this for about the 500th time. Noises can not be diagnosed in a written format with even remote accuracy. It could be something minor and no big deal or it could be something that could kill you (or somebody else) in the next 5 minutes. Take it to somebody that can hear and see it to be checked!!!!

How much do you weigh OP? You're probably getting in the car wrong.

I had this problem. The dealer ended up being loose bolts holding some sort of under-engine cover at the front of the car. Sorry I can't be any more specific - I wasn't given any more detail.
