Default Groans/Creaks

Newbie here with 03 limited edition. 106k miles. When i turn it groans loudly...almost sounds like rubbing noise. Also when i go over small dips or just uneven rd i hear loud creaking noise! I have had bushing replaced per mechanic he says its the cv joints. Im looking for second opinion as he qouted me 100 for each cv joint and 100 labor. I just want to be sure its the actual problem. The bushing didnt help with the sounds. I also just took a bit of a rd trip..a few hrs...now i hear a whining noise when i drive as well, any suggestions on that will be appreciated!

Just me but, if he couldn't distinguish between the bushing and the axle. I would get someone else to look at it.For that mater you could do that kind of diagnoses yourself. One part at a time!
