    I don,t know about the brakes "bit". But there is a bit of a thing where you can get a noise from the radiator mounts, and the coil spring seats can make a noise too.

    it only makes the noise when i apply the brake gently and then as i get down to about 10mph i get the creaking once i have used the car for a while it doesnt do it also there is no problems when going over speed bumps so am thinking the problem is coming from the brakes

    Creaking from brakes..... could they be sticking..?

    Usual front end noises (like said above) are usually caused by spring seats, radiator mounts and drop links.

    The spring seat problem doesn't cause a creaking, it causes a loud "twang" that sounds like someone's hitting the underside of the chassis with a hammer - when you hear it you wouldn't even guess it was coming from the suspension.
