    steering

    hi guys! when i turn the steering wheel while stationary i'm hearing a creaking noise coming from the front suspension. anyone experienced this? worn bush on track rods, suspension arms? don't hear any knocks when driving over bumps or uneven surface, only when i'm maneuvering slowly while turning the steering i hear this creak.

    Check your ball joints..sometimes I see the struts make noise as well.. disconnect @ the strut mount to test.

    Along with the strut mounts and ball joints, you'll have to inspect all the steering linkages and idler arm bushings... most likely you'll find something that isn't right. Hopefully it will make itself apparent without too much mystery...
