wierd noises!

Hey guys i have a 2002 silver SVT focus, and i notice when goin around 10 miles an hour or slower turning the wheel back and forth rapidly there is a popping/thud sound coming from the front area. I have checked the wheels, rims tires no rub not loose. I also hear it when i go over speed bumps or any sort of incline. It sounds like something is loose but i just cant tell what. Also the rear left wheel area is creeking when i go over bumps a certain way...thought it was the suspension but when i jump on the car and shake it, no noise comes out...any suggestions on where to look? The creaking is driving me nuts! Any help or insight would be much help.

My guess would be possibly an engine mount or a suspension issue. I'd have to go with the engine mount. Seen/heard something similar on my Eclipse and a buddies Saturn.
