Honda Pilot-Creaking after replaced rear main seal and front motor mount

My 2004 Honda Pilot was leaking oil recently. Diagnosis was problem with rear main seal. I took it to a transmission shop. They replaced the rear main seal and the front motor mount. Within 24 hrs of this repair, I started hearing creaking. I hear the noise when I go to straighten out the wheel after turning a corner.

Bring it back and have them check everything. Maybe the motor mount is a little loose.

Sounds like maybe a bad ball joint or tie rod end. Not necessarily related to the work you had done. Have a trusted local mechanic check it out, bot the transmission shop.
