A creak can be anything that has rubber contacting metal. Your Control Arm bushings for example can wear out and make a creaking noise. You might want to get under the Jeep with a grease gun and start greasing the grease fittings. This will eliminate a bunch of the suspicions. Do the ones on your Driveshaft, Control arms, and tie rods. Report back if the creaks went away or not.
