2008 Yaris Hatch Coupe 5 speed

Hey all. I recently started to hear creaking noises toward the front center of the car. It happens when the weight of the car is shifted around while driving slow. Maybe it happens when I am on the highway but cant hear past the road noise. I also hear a creek when i put my foot down on the clutch and when I brake. This all seemed to happen at the same time.
Has anyone experienced this and if so what was your fix ? I jacked the car up went underneath and looked and felt around with no luck. Looking forward to hear your replies.

my car creeks. i figured it was just dry bushings and/or old springs. i figured it's just the cheapness of the car. do you have any drivability issues?

Car runs great. Its just a creeking noise when car moves around. I was looking for bushings but couldn't find the control arm or motor mounts. Any places you know of where I can give it a shot of white lithum grease if needed and or replace torn bushing ? thanks

Like a motor mount issue. Typically when a control arm bushing goes you'll hear a loud clunk of metal on metal. Rubber bushing typically don't creak like poly bushings do.

If check the motor mounts
