hey. im just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or knows what to do. when im going slow and turn the wheel left or right it makes a sound as if something is not lubricated properly. as long as the steering wheel is not touched it dosent make any noise intill i turn it. like a metal on metal sound. no its not my tires they dont rub i checked that out. im wondering if it could be anything as simple as a tie-rod end?? . the funny thing is when ever i jack up the car and take weight off the front end the noise goes away for acoupe days then comes back lol. thanks

Brent, can you describe the noise better than a metal on metal sound. Mine makes a distinctive thump as though something heavy hits the frame. It turned out to be a bushing that was pounded out.
