Has it only just started today or has it been doing it a while now? Could be the heat making things expand.

If it's a creaking sound it could be a number of things:
- Shocks going dry (the rears on the Civics are known for this)
- Drop links on their way out (could be early signs)
- Front control arm bush

Creaky clutch is your master cylinder known fault its fixed under warranty even if yours is out of warranty. Knock from front when turning slow is probably loose subframe (just had mine done same symptoms as you) it's another known fault with Honda and will be fixed for free. So book it in.

Spoon rigid collar kit should stop that happening again, all the dealer will have done is tightened or replaced bolts.

This is gonna be my next purchase, anyone know where the cheapest place for these are??

I was getting like a slight knock/kick when doing a park so was turning slow it usually happened near full lock, took it in for a check over before my holiday and they found the subframe was loose so tightened it up and i have had no knock/kick since and as it's a known fault i would say this could be your problem.

They will only re-grease it and tighten it up but i would ask if it would be done for free as i've read some having it done for free and others having to pay.

As the others have suggested I would get your subframe checked 1st as thats a quick one and it might solve the creaking. Had my subframe tightened last year nothing to worry about and it sorted out my car creaking in the morning but not my knees they still creak ;)
