04 ball joint?

When i turn the wheel I get a loud creaking noise come from driverside I tried to hear where it was coming from it seems like it was from the upper ball joint. Any recommendations or thoughts could I just try to grease it up or is it need replaced.

Jack the front end up and see if your wheel moves in and out from top to bottom.

jack the tire off the ground and try to rock the tire top and bottom side to side

they are unit bearings so they are non serviceable

they usually start growling or making a noise to give you heads up
