Creaking/Knocking front drivers side suspension......again!!!

I'm back again looking for advice. My 156 Sportwagon has developed a horrendous creaking noise from the drivers side front suspension area, It appears when I slowly set off, softly brake, travel slowly (under say 30mph) on an uneven surface, speed bumps, and if I move the wheels left and right while stationary it can be heard....actually, its pretty much constantly! also with a knocking when going over speed bumps, pot holes etc.
I'd say straight away wishbone ball joints, but I've replaced the uppers about 2 months ago, the lowers around 18 months ago, and also a new ARB about 18 months ago. Power steering fluids fine, is there anything else around that area that may cause this awful creaking noise before I go and replace my lower wishbones.....again!

Take it to a friendly garage and get it up on the ramps and have a look.

Got the same thing on mine. Turns out the previous owner only relaced one droplink!
