Hi guys, my front left wheel recently took impact, I've replaced the alloy however I think there's further damage from the shock absorber OR could be something else. When I drive and go over different terrain in the road it makes a creaky noise? Has anyone dealt with anything like this? If my shock absorber does need replacing can someone point me in the right direction as I've seen different ones also
Thanks
Adam

Could be also your lower arm?Ball joint? ARB? Topmount?
Take your wheel off of carefully inspect ALL the suspension joints

If it is your damper - I would replace with an OEM - there are MANY part numbers depending on PR codes of your vehicle build.

If your car was older I would suggest replacing both dampers if you have to replace one - but as it's very new I would be ok just changing one.
