Question: What is making that creaking noise in my front-end?

When comming to a sudden stop, taking sudden turns, going over a speed bump, and bumps in the road is causing my cars front-end to creak. And I know what shocks and strut sound like and I know for a fact that it is not my shocks or struts. Any advice?
