In brief: Joint cracking

Cracking of joints is common and probably nothing to worry about.
Ligaments can make these noises as they get tight rapidly when the joint is moving. Crackimg may be due to a tendon snapping over or around the joint. Or nitrogen bubbles in the fluid inside the joint may be rapidly brought into or out of solution when the joints are moving.

In brief: Tendons,ligament!

Numerous causes for squeeky knees.
Most common in your age is chondormalacia, which gives a "grinding" feeling to your patellae when arising from a kneeling position, which is caused by improper motion of the kneecap with "fraying of the cartilage." however, some gases can be released, tendons and ligaments can snap. One important question: do you have pain?
