Default creeking noise in front end

I've started to hear a creeking noise from the left front wheel somewhere when I'm coming up to a stop and starting to go again. Other than that, there isn't any noise. I tried pushing down on the corners of the car to hear if it'* the struts, but it isn't. Any guesses?

Sounds very similar to my experience when I had a sticking strut bearing in the front. Except I also had a problem with the steering where it would want to stick at certain points due to the strut bearing locking up and not wanting to move.

Got that replaced as well as the intermediate steering shaft and all is well again with my front end!

I think it may be the transmission mount. I was stopping at a light today and it started to creek so I shifted to neutral and the creeking stopped while I coasted the last 5 feet. Put it in drive and started moving again and the creeking came back.

I found the problem, the new intake is vibrating on the fender well.
