    Well a lot of times when you feel something on 1 side its the other thats the issue. However if you are positive the noise is from the front right then you are most likely correct. That said, creaking and bumping when going over rough road and such even at slow speeds is usually 1 of 2 things- bad ball joints or bad sway bar links. The links are fairly easy to see when turning a wheel hard over uts usually a vertical or semi vertical bar with bushings on either end. The bar could be bent or the bushings worn or destroyed. So get under and take a look. If you don’t see or find anything obvious, jack up that side and lift on the tire, push and pull in/out and front to back. Look at the ball joints and listen for noise. Chrck the boots see if they are torn, grease is spilling out etc. And you’ll have your answer.
