Alrighty, so I got my new bike about 3 months ago and have done some changes to it since then, she's a verde spectrum.
Bike specs will be at the end of the post.

When I first got her:

After some trial and error, I replaced the parts I did not like with new ones:

Sadly I had to remove my new bars, stem and headset. I'll explain why further down the post.

Specs:
Frame- Verde spectrum
Fork- stock (with profile stem lock to replace star nut)
Bars- BSD High Lander
Grips- ODI Longneck
Stem- Alienation Iron Maiden
Headset- Primo Integrated
Wheels- Cinema 777's laced to Cinema VX front and rear
Tires- Duo Stunner 2.2 Front and Rear
Bottom Bracket- Demolition Mid
Cranks- Stock sad I want new ones
Pedals- Animal Hamilton PC
Sprocket- Verde React
Chain- Mechanik Hollow Trac Half Link
Seat Post- Duo Resilite
Seat- Duo Resilite

I think I got everything.

I sand blasted my old bars and clear coated them, and stuck them on my wall:

Sadly I had to remove my new bars, stem and headset. When I replaced my star nut after it cracked, we realized that my steerer tube is too short for the new headset and stem. So until I get a new fork, I can't use my new stem and headset cap:

Well, that's about it. My next items on the buy list are forks, cranks, and a seat. Let me know what you guys think!

I know that, I'm preserving them for when I get my new forks.

True that. My old chain broke, replaced that. My spindle feels like it's bent a little bit and makes an extremely loud click when I crank and I can feel it. (I replaced the bottom bracket thinking it was that but it wasn't)
The stock pedals were complete shit. I got the headset cause yolo lol and the stock headset wasn't sealed. I got the stem and bars because of personal preference,

So now I just have to get a new fork with a hella long steerer tube so I don't run into this problem again. And either new cranks or a new spindle.

The joys of riding bmx (I'm not even that good), but it's worth it.

The creak is probably your chain needing lube

It's not a creek it's a click and I can hear it and feel it. I clean and lube my chain every 2 weeks.

That may be a possibility too because I hear alot about how verde react sprockets bend.
