Re1600 creaking

Sounds like its coming from the threads in the heim joint but the nut I's tight. What's wrong?

if the threads really are creaking they either aren't tight or they've been damaged. either way there's a good possibility they'll pull out. if it really is the threads and not something else.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Well if I push the bar up and down with my hand(lifting suspension with each push) it creaks around that joint area. I see no movement ANYWHERE the heim joint has tiny play but didn't squeak until now
