Squeak when turning steering wheel?

Hey guys,

Since yesterday whenever I turn my wheel either right/left farther than a normal turn on the road I get a kind of chirp/squeak coming from underneath the front end. I haven't gotten a chance to check my power steering fluid so im gonna do that just to make sure. And ideas on what this might be if it's not that?

Thanks,

Ryan

Does it do it while you're turning the wheel, or when the wheel is completely turned and your moving like the tires are screeching?

Most steering wheel squeaks come from where the steering shaft passes through its rubber fire wall boot. I'd spray the shaft with white lithium grease (not WD-40) where it passes through the boot and see if that doesn't cure the squeak.

It does it while the wheel is turned and jeep is moving, it's def not the tires squealing. So I have no idea. But thanks jerry, I'll try that.

I have the same issue. It just started earlier this week. I'm going to try spraying the steering shaft and see if that gets rid of it
