Creak noise on RR RH SUSP

was digging under it just now and found this:

it is the frame side of the rear passenger side upper control arm..... the bushing has "walked" out of the control arm.....

here's the drivers side for reference:

anybody else have this problem??? i'll probably tear into it this weekend and see what is causing it.....
Now that you mentioned, I had been experiencing this issue for near 2K kms, I got it just 1-2 day after installation, but though was "normal" jeep noise(refering to big lifts and other mods come with) but after some driving on highway and leveled roads it has got some kind annoying and sounding like old ride. I even got a full clean up and oiled in all axles and joints but noise just kept in there, basically only this rear right hand strut. Did you fixed the joint seal so the noised went away? Its hard to get used to this creaking noise and not only bothering but embarrasing.

Would be good to know how did you fix it before I start thinking about change tires. I will check the zone this weekend by removing the tire and check the joint, hopefully is only that.

I was just imaging that probably the strut spacer was "rubbing" against body sheet metal which has been giving me some worries about totally cracked area :S even more scarry

Thanks to all posts have been very ilustrative, glad to had join Jeep Forum!!
