Creaking Suspension

RRS HSE 2011 Auto with 140,000 miles.

I bought this car back in October and not really had any major issse with it so far.

It has developed a creaking noise when going over bumps both at low speed and high. the vibration of the creak can aslo be felt through the steering wheel. this only occurs when the vehicle has warmed up over 30 mins of driving. It sounds as though it comes from the front but not sure which side. it also creaks when lowering and lifting the car to the differnet suspension hieghts (hopefully video link works)

I had the car in at my usual independant for service/MOT/Gearbox flush (slugish gear change, problem solved) but they couldn't replicate the creak but also could not see anything obvious.

Grateful for any advice and if thee is anything i can easliy do to narrow down the fault.

THanks

Sounds like what I’m having, also the same as others with bushes drying out in heat.
Only happened since the good weather.
Have tried spraying with silicone spray only fixes it for few hours.
