What's wrong with my brakes???

hey guys,

after a spin out a couple of months ago which resulted in a gutter making impact with my rear left wheel and possibly the front left too,

there has been a creaking, which sometimes almost sounds like a popping at times? would this be the brakes?
if so, what is the problem and how can it be fixed?

thanks in advance

alex

try checking the shocks on that side all the way up as far as the rubber dampner, try spraying a bit of spray oil on it and if the noise go's out of it you know to change it. ps check the break as well while you there and this may not be the problem

I'd take it to a diff or a suspension place.
Any mechanic would be better than not getting it checked.
