strut mounts. the plastic bearing wears out and causes creeking noises.most times you'll hear them when breaking at around 30mph. its a common thing on maximas and altimas

Have you removed your struts before? It's pretty easy to do....

Strut mount is what I'm thinking. I had the same noise, but only coming from pass. side. I bought the mounts to replace, but installed coilovers before I changed the mounts. When I changed to coils, the problem was gone.
I've got some kyb strut mounts, new, for a good price if your interested.
