front? back? side? I have a door that creaks and in the front the sway bar rubs on the frame on certain angles which makes a scraping type noise. I think I need new bushings.

I had a similar thing with my 97 Cherokee Country, and I found that the plastic coating of the domelight switch (driver's side door opening) was missing. The metal of the switch "scratched" on the door with every weight shifting resulting in body torsion. I put some lube on the switch and the sound was gone....
Your problem may be more serious than that, but the noise produced by this switch was pretty amazing considered the simple cause.... ....so you may check into this anyways.

Best,
Johannes
