    Have had my CLS for a few months now, and have noticed that it creaks at slow speed when turning left or reversing with the wheels turned to the left. It also seems to do this under breaking. It has airmatic and does it in any mode and with the car raised or not. Any suggestions is the airmatic or the steering rack the issue?

    It could be a worn lower ball joint. Very common issue.

    I took the car in for the noise as it seems to be getting worse, dealer couldn't find anything obvious, but said the camber arm bushes might be the issue, where are these and what does the camber arm do?
