What is a creaking sound from the front of my 500 SE symptomatic of? What should I get replaced? It only sounds like that when I move slowly forward. I had the lower ball joint replaced last summer.

I've read other posts here about creaking sounds, but just want confirmation of what it most likely is.

I have 296,000 kms. on the clock. I didn't get this sound until just last month, I think, when I did a rudimentary flush of my p/s system and got my assistant to turn the wheel from lock to lock. (One last thing -- I don't get this creaking sound when I turn the car.)
