    May be worth checking the rubber ARB bushes first. Spray some rubber-safe silicone lubricant into them and see if the noise temporarily disappears. If it does then replace these first - a few quid from the dealer if you can do the job yourself (although you will need a ratcheting torx spanner).

    Plenty about doing this particular job on here, starting with the How2 section.

    Also check the shocks as you say. Other things on the front suspension (springs, droplinks, and also the radiator mountings) tend to make clonking or rattling or cracking noises rather than speaking/creaking.
