Default 1999 Accord EX V6, strange creak noise in rear

Hi

I got a 1999 Accord EX V6, (Canadian version, if it matters), 126K km (78K
miles).
When the car compresses it rear suspension (like when beginning to
accelerate and the car tips back, or at the end of braking, when the car
stops and tips back), it makes a creaking noise, sounds kinda metallic. I'm
100% sure it in the rear, and 99.9% sure it's one the left (driver's) side.
Last time i hear a similar noise when the lower front ball joints were dying
on my old car.
I can reproduce the noise by pressing down hard on the left-rear corner and
thus forcing some downward movement in the suspension. I think (but not
sure) the creak is easier reproducible after the car has been driven, and
less pronounces when it's cold out of the garage.

Anyone has any ideas what might this be?

Thanks in advance,

-Oleg

My first guesses would be a bad shock absorber or bad springs. If you know
a local mechanic that you trust, take it to him and press down hard on the
corner of the car to show him the problem. He may be able to figure out
the source of the noise without any problems. It could also be a bad
balljoint. The rear suspension uses one balljoint, on the outer end of the
upper arm.
