I was at the dealer today, chatting with a tech about my SVTF, and this issue came up. He showed me a new TSB which addresses a "creaking, rubbing or groaning" noise from the front end. It covered all ZX3's from 00 to 03. The repair is to replace the strut bearing. This is the bushing type thingy that the strut passes through. You know the three bolts on top of the fender apron. Anywhoo I will get the TSB# and post it here.
