Question X5 Suspension creakes & Groans!

My X5 3.0d 2005 with self levelling suspension creakes and groans like an old man when turning corners e.g going round roundabouts when the body changes angle i.e. left side down then right side dowm it. I have had the front bars replaced and the CV joints repacked. Difficult to pinpoint where its is coming from when driving. No noise when on the move or over bumps in the road. Any suggestions?

Check the ball joints at the front for a start, I think its called lower trailing arm, by the wishbone

Suspensio creaks & Groans

If my memory of what the garage showed me is correct they have done that with no improvement.
