First thread here, big fan of the forum! Your site has helped with many DIY fixes in the past.
I have a 2000 Wrangler TJ Sport pretty much stock, one of these days when I get the cash I'll add a few things.
Anyways-for a while now I have noticed that after about 20 miles or so of Freeway driving I hear what can best be described as a slight creaking only when I am turning at low speeds (after leaving the freeway of course), driving straight-nothing. If I turn sharp I can feel it a bit through the wheel. If I let it cool down and start up the next day everything is fine.
My thoughts are that something within the steering system is heating up and expanding from the high-speed driving.
I have brought this question up to countless mechanics-from my gearhead friends to the professionals and can't get a straight answer.
Any answers? And if so can I fix myself? Bit of a starving student...
