Creaking sound when pulling away in first

Hi people,

It seems as one problem gets sorted, another arises! Gotta love project cars!

So when I pull away in first, the car creaks for around 1.5 sec, it only happens in first when pulling off from a set of traffic lights for example.
Its louder and lasts for longer if I accelerate hard in first off the lights.
Its very quiet and goes away quickly if I very gently move off the lights in first.

Some research online suggests seized anti-roll bar drop-links?

Can anyone advise please?
 
Drop links usually knock (badly) with age.

The description isn't great. Creak or crash, maybe upload a video of it. Could lots of things, engine mounts, driveshfts, sticky brakes, it's a long list of possibles.

thanks for the reply. Yeah description wasn’t great but greased the drop links and we’re good.
