Question How to stop creaking noise on Ford KA? (re Bushes)

My Ford KA has developed a creaking noise when going over bumps.

I have taken it to a garage and they mentioned something about replacing the "bushes."

They also told me that for the time being the car will be ok without replacing them, but I should do it in the next few months.

I have decided to wait a few months, but I would like to know if there is anyway of stopping the sound (i.e.: applying grease somewhere) ??

I am not technically minded, and your help would be really appreciated.

Thanks
