I had something similar and it turned out to be a broken spring, hopefully not in your case.

I found this morning my steering was heavier probably due to drop in temperature.

When in parked if I turn the wheel all the way to the left it lifts the left side of the car on the front, is that normal?

I''ve heard a sort of creak/knock when turning sometimes from the passenger side. It's only done it this last week or so. I remember reading a thread regarding removing a bolt from the suspension and applying grease between the joint as its a common fault. Can't remember which bolt it is though?

Hmmmm depends, if its the sub frame then I'd say yes it would be done on warranty (they only pack it with grease and tighten it up) I had my local backstreet garage look at mine, the thing with honda is you have the risk of not being the sub frame and then they hit you with a large labour bill and your talking £100 + an hour, I've just had a service done supplied my own stuff and was charged £180 labour
