Since I don't know much about the suspension I thought I might be able to play name that noise with it.Here goes:
When I'm in traffic rush hour and driving about 5-10 mph,when hitting the gas and then slow stopping I'm getting a creeking sound,like and old house door.I'm also getting this in park when I turn the wheels left right--right left.Also getting the squeeek noise on a bumpy road.What should I be looking at/for to replace?

Besides the ball joints, check the outer tie rod ends -- they may be dry and loose. Fix the problem soon!! A ball joint failure or a tie rod end failure arent pretty, and could easily get you or someone else killed if they fail while driving in traffic.
