Creaking suspension under slow acceleration from stop... subframe?

I watched a few videos and read a few things others have said. It's not bad, but it annoys me. Car has 47k on it and I just have the upper engine and trans mounts. Is this just the subframe needing an upgrade kit, or the OEM dogbone setup?

Usually the subframe shifts when cornering hard and will create a knocking sound

For your issue, I'd start with a visual inspection of the suspension bushings & all of the suspension components (like the sway bar links & top mounts, etc)
