As Daz6 says the creaky rear suspension does have a free fix at Honda dealers (if they still offer it) it covers all the 8th Gen Civics. Usually the noise is only present when setting off first thing in the morning and disappears after a short while, your problem may be a different issue.
As a side note the chief mechanic at my Honda garage tried the lube fix to stop the creaking on his Civic with no success, works for some but not all.
And yes the ride is rubbish especially with all the potholes around these days, all cars have good and bad points.
