FWIW, my clunking strut bearings did make creaking noises when turning from lock to lock. In fact, that noise is still slightly present after my fix. It doesn't really bother me, though.
I've actually never tried to recreate the noise on a flat surface or by turning my wheels while stopped... I may have to give that a shot and see if I can hear anything. My previous fix was insanely obvious. This time around, it's not to that point, yet.
