It sounds like your ball joints and maybe control arm busgings. However ball joints seem to be the culprit on the creaking noise. Have u tried to see if it makes noise while the front tires are elevated? It could atleast rule out a couple of things like the p/s pump which it sounds like a bit while the car was creeking

The sound happens when the car is on the ground. I had it on a lift and when I turn the steering wheel I hear nothing. I don't think it's the pump tho this creak is different. And from what I recall the control arm bushing looked fine.

Its one of your ball joints. Fords are notorious for ball joint failures. The reason you dont hear it when you lift the wheels off the ground is because there isn't any weight on the faulty ball joint. I would honestly buy all four for the front and change them all before they slowly fail one by one. You can rent the tool to remove/install them from any parts store.
