Does it have a fly hop up kit? Does the lower fork guide/support move on the fork?
If the lower piece moves you will get a definate creaking noise.  Check it and if it does move , try to pack it with a shim of some sort.

Other than that, put some penetrating oil in both bearings and tighten up your fork top load bolt and stem bolts.
Hope that fixes it.

It's most likely not even the bearings themselves, but the point at which the bearing comes in contact with the frame. Did you grease the cup before you put the bearing in?
