Is it a creaking or a rattling?

Please do. Assuming you've got a Hardrock, it might be where the cable is housed, all my freakin' cables are creaking, I'm gonna kill the guys at the LBS They were supposed to have fixed the rubber seal things on my fork and stopped the creaking. They did every tune up I could imagine yet they didn't do what I was most concerned about. :S
