Well just had the front and rear struts done, plus the front lower arms and ball joints and rear sway bar bushings but the rear still makes the creeking noise when going slow and the front a piping sound when ya first turn the wheel. Non of the sway bar linkage on either end was replaced.

I'm wondering if I need to replace the linkage on both ends and LCA on the rear?

I'm sure the work on the front needed to be done because I have read a lot about the LCA going bad really quick, but I hit a pretty bad pothole and was thinking the rear LCA might need replaced to.

A pretty thank you for responses

Rear bushings are a known issue.

I had to do the whole rear system. Lower arms. Upper arms and toe links. And if you let those go for too long you wreck the trailing arm bushings which is a very expensive job because last time I looked dodge doesn't make replaceable bushings. You order the whole rear arm for both sides. In Canada they were $450 a side. I did all mine at just over 80,000 km.
