Noisy front suspension

I'm noticing a lot of squeaking, creaking on heavy front compression of my 2006 X3. It's been a long, cold winter with a lot of deep cold and rough roads. The car has 135k on it, well maintained. I'm thinking that the struts are due as I'm noticing very slight clunking from the front as well. Thoughts?

Having the exact same problems with my 06...61k miles. Hoping it will make it until the end of March when I can leave it with my mechanic for a few days. It has other issues as well. Curious to hear what you find.

Mine too 85 k '04. A deep creaky groan and definitely as the suspension compresses near maximum.
