Small squeaking noise when turning left & right, sounds dry maybe. No sure where to check first. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Does it sound like the seal between the inside and outside of the truck, at the firewall, could need lubed?

if its not the seal going to the firewall like mentioned above it is probably the Intermediate Shaft. My new body 07 did this when turning, almost sounded like a fart noise..dealer slapped some lube on the shaft...then it only lasted two weeks. then i took it back and they gave me a whole new IS shaft

Steering wheel Squeaking

Postby Machster69 » Jul 01 2012, 3:32pm

Both my nnbs do it.... And others ive talked to have it also. Personally i dont worry about it... Youd think they would have fixed this by now? Mine doesnt sound like the IM shaft...ive only seen those shafts blamed for thumps, but i guess it could be the cause. Sounds like rubber squeaks... Like the seal at the fw...

Yea, seems to be at the firewall. I lubed myself the other day after cleaning the throttle body. It seem to help a little bit. And yes it is only when I turn. I can't hear it other then that due to road noise from my tires or it's not there. I'll c hkw it acts in the next couple of days.

I'd suggest using spray sliicone to lubricate it.

It's hard to say without actually hearing it. It may not be what I am thinking it is.
