Creaking Noise when turning

What can possibly cause a creaking noise when turning - especially after running for about 10 minutes. The noise sounds or reminds me of an old wooden ship. At first I noted the noise a bit in the front, now more in the rear, always when turning. At first I thought the differentials might be low on oil but both are full. This has been going on for a while, it does not seem dangerous but it is something I would like to fix.

well once you have greased all the zerks on your steering and suspension and it still exists i would guess its just your spring packs racking during a turn from sideload.

If you still have your track bars, make sure eveything on them is tight, and also check the brackets.
