If you do your own work, you should use a graphite or other dry lubricant on the cams from time to time. You should pull the axles to do this. It's also good to grease the limb pockets with lithium grease from time to time.

As for the creaking, the common culprits are: cable gaurd, limb pockets, and axles. Check your axles for straightness, and check the bearings for wear. Grease them as noted. Same with the limb pockets. Check your cable slide for wear, and replace as needed.
