Last night drive my 2000 jeep wrangler sport I noticed when I would turn the steering wheel either way, I would get a tick, crackle type sound. I tried to listen to where it's coming from and it's coming from the steering column… what could this be?
It's probably rubbing where it passes through the rubber boot on the firewall. Spray the rubber boot/shaft where it passes through with some white lithium grease which is available in an aerosol can. Don't waste your time spraying it with WD-40 which will soon evaporate and let it start making noise again.
