Hey guys, I have this weird noise that comes from my subaru, often when im driving quickly through san francisco i'll come up to a red quickly and hit the breaks hard... car stops fine but then i get like this creaking that I hear through the doors from the front to the back, thought nothing of it, maybe you guys can let me know more.

check the underside of your car and make sure it's still there, lol. sounds like you got some body flex going on maybe? how rusty are the frame-rails?

My GL made a groaning/creaking noise when stopping hard or going over
speedbumps or similar. It sounded like a worn out front end,
When I had to replace the front CV's the noise stopped!
A welcome suprise! I would have bet it was other front end parts.

I think it is the CV joint, I replaced the right one and I think it used to go on both sides so it's prolly the left one going out.... sigh

I need to change that.
