Default 2000 Accord V6 popping/creaking in front

I have a 2000 Accord with an annoying popping/creaking sound in the front suspension area. I have changed struts, ball joints (upper and lower), tie rod ends, sway bar links and bushings, CV shafts and right motor mount. (Kitchen sink is the same, pretty much everything else is new). Especially noticeable on bumpy roads, and upon rapid acceleration/deceleration. It kind of sounds like rubber-on-rubber or rubber-on-metal. Anyone else have this issue, or any other suggestions???

Inspect the radius rod bushings for wear.

Next, inpsect the subframe on the pass side.....right below the AC/Evap drain tube. Seen a few of the 6th gens (98-02) where the subframe will rust thru in that area.

upper and lower ball joints. my 99 ex does it and i've narrowed it down to that. you can take the tire off and with the car on a jack stand I use a long 2x4 as a lever and was able to move the suspension to locate the squeaking

On my wife's 2000 Accord it was the sway bar end links. One of the originals popped a cap off (the nylon let got inside it). Replaced them with MOOG greaseable ones and it's been quiet ever since. Note, this car currently has 226K on it, with most of all it's original suspension parts.

Default Had this on my 2000 SE

Get new control arm bushings. It fixed the popping sounds (metal on metal). Given that you have replaced so much already, you may want to inspect the steering rack. I am in the process of replacing every suspension component on my car. I observe the feel and sound every day to premp trouble on the way. New strut assemblies are next on my list.

Edit on 26 Dec 17. It was the radius arm bushings that were replaced. If I accelerated quickly or breaked quickly, I got a popping sound/feel from the front. The new bushings fixed that.
