At the bottom of both door frames on both sides (but near middle) is a black plastic wedge. It is tapered and possibly thinned (Don't know if mine was worn that way or not). I flipped them over (held on by 2 allen bolts), and it presented a fatter expression to the door. No more creaks.

Fwiw, WD-40 is more of a solvent than a lubricant. If there's any residual oil or grease on your mechanism, it will just dissolve it and once the WD-40 evaporates, you're left with no lubricant. I've always seen penetrating oils (WD-40) as something to help loosen corroded fasteners, disperse water or help insert a new fastener. Never a lubricant with a lasting film.
When it comes to cables, moving parts, etc, I think it's better to use a grease or something like a chain lube. Even just regular ol' oil is better than a penetrating oil/solvent.
That's my experience.
