    Default Squeakish Sound when turning

    Hey all, I've got some clunking and sqeaking ish sounds when turning. Here is a video, power steering fluid is topped off. It seems to occur more when turning to the right.

    Sounds kind of like the strut tower mount possibly. I would have someone turn the wheel while at park and feel the top of each strut tower to feel for vibration from popping, that would indicate a mount issue. Could also be a number of things. I would start with strut tower test.

    Then I would jack front end up, put on jack stands, lock the wheel, and feel for play in both side to side and up and down direction.

    If both tests come up with nothing, I would just hand check all suspension components for play. Then start greasing the hell out of all bushings like sway bar bushings and tie rod etc.

    If this doesn't fix your problem, then clearly you're screwed! Just kidding, but I would try these first.

    okay thanks a bunch. I will try what you've recommended during the next few days. I was under the car a while ago and saw lube nipples or whatever they are called. So I picked up a grease gun and will lube those points I saw. It's an 06 with 180k miles on it. Not sure when the suspension components start failing, but I would imagine my car is due for some replacement parts / maintenance.
