Subject: '99 9-3: Creaking noise from front suspension at low temperatures

My '99 Saab 9-3 has an annoying problem. At low temperatures ( < -5 celsius) the front suspension makes a loud creaking noise whenever I drive over speedbumps (or any other kind of bumps). After about 5 minutes of driving the problem disappears. My garage claims that this is a normal problem for this car and there's not a lot that can be done about it. They tried lubricating some rubbers (that should be the cause) but that doesn't seem to help at all. Is this indeed a known problem (couldn't find any mention of it with Google)? Is there a remedy? I'm still under warranty, should the garage fix it? Thanks for any help, TSI
