    Recently, I started hearing a squeaky noise when I turn the steering wheel. The noise is also present when I drive over speedbumps.

    Any remedies for this problem. Its driving me a-squeak.

    I just started having this problem a while ago. I figured I just needed to add some PS fluid for it to go away. Naturally I haven't bothered to do that yet....

    My steering squeaks BAAAD, im pretty sure the rack is going, and if I am not moving, it is really hard to steer, almost impossible

    Last week i had major squeak while turning the wheel searched around the web for similar problems to mine at first i thought it was power steering pump and rack so i proceeded to flush the power steering and putting new fluids but still had the noise after wards ,,,,then read about squeak of lower ball joints and this was actually the real problem i had no grease in either the lower ball joints and tie rod ends so after oumping new grease into the joints and tie rod ends the noise went away..! Maybe this is ure issue.. Try raising ure wheels on jackstands and turn the wheel to see if it still makes the noise.. If it does stop the its defently the joints

    Sorry for the mispelling typing on the phone
