i guess I'll have to see. I took it up to the shop and the guy said he was positive it was the lower control arm. What spray did you use just in case?Probably not the control arm; there's a rubber bushing in there (rear mount) and I had a bit of creak on first couple of bumps in a given day. Started hitting it with silicone spray when under there to rotate the tires, which would work for a while then it would come back..... around ~60k miles or so it disappeared and has stayed gone.
is there a TSB about replacing the lower control arm to solve the clunking issue?Just an update. I had both of my lower control arms replaced yesterday, and i hear absolutely nothing from the front now!! No more of that buckling sound when I turn my wheel. Let's hope it last.

I personally get a creaking noise when I go down a sharp incline at my parking garage, or sometimes just braking. They've replaced a few things, but it doesn't change. It's on the driver side and attached is a youtube link to hear it. They can't duplicate it, but I can within 15 minutes of getting it back.
It happens at the 5 second mark. This is the only thing that really bothers me about my car. 2016 Mazda6 Sport
I’m having the same problem here sapphir8. Only happens on down ramps in my garage when I hit the end flat point or bumpy roads, not when I turn the steering wheel full-in. You called it a creak, but mine sounds just like yours on your video: more like a suspension groaning noise. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the struts as well as some bushings but noise is still there. Has your issue been fixed? And yeah it’s not lost on me that this is a-year-old post. I’m hoping tho some resolution for you was found that I can take to my dealer- since they can’t find the solution.
