A frame binding

I noticed a creaking metallic noise the last time out, I’ve isolated to the front A-frame DFF33976-F5F1-4CEB-812C-53EDE54E5373.thumb.jpeg.61e5e7ea6f2bfa7a932f2c46c3c35428.jpeg

 

it feels bound up. Is the joint broken or does it just need some TLC like grease?

That diagram looks like rear A frame but your text refers to front A frame?   I assume you mean rear?  

 

I would pull it apart and grease it.  Its supposed to flex under load.

 

One thing to keep in mind is that it should be treated as consumables in heavily tracked cars - refer link

I have the replacement A Frame, the old one was bent fairly equally on both sides - see pic, not sure of the physics of how that happened but definitely needed replacing.

That is fairly bent - nicely caught before failure.  The end outcome - the noise was the joints binding from the bent A frame.
