Hey guys...thanks for all of the quick replies! Sorry I'm not able to get on here more often...but the boot wasn't my issue. I tried coating inside that with white lithium grease even before I signed up for this forum I have even double-checked the Zynga...greased the carburetor and topped off the taillight fluid, just to be safe
My problem appears to be in the nylon bushing where the steering shaft changes angles. At least thats what two sets of ears say after taking turns turning the wheel and listening around.
Any ideas in that area?

|Jerry Bransford||Don't make finding the rubber steering shaft boot more difficult than it really is. Follow the steering shaft to the firewall, you'll find the boot.|

|UFOtestpilot||Ok, I've been looking for two hours now, and I can't find the Zynga anywhere. I'm starting to think they forgot to put one on my Jeep.|

|PStov98TJ||Can y'all post up pics of the boot you're referring to? Sorry, I'm more of a visual type person... Thanks in advance!|

|Norcal73||I put marine grease on the steering shaft between the rubber boot and shaft and its quiet until the grease wears off. Reapply when it starts squeaking again.|

|PStov98TJ||What if the squeaking only occurs when it's cold/the engine is first turned on? Still the boot you think? Or just new PS fluid? If so what brand/type? Sorry for the dumb questions. I'd go out and try greasing up the boot first but I'm up at college away from my favorite toy so I like to have a plan of action set for the next time I'm home for little quick fixes like this|

|Patrick H||I had the squeaky steering shaft. I sprayed the boot with Amsoil red spray grease (since that's what I had on hand) and it's been quiet since.|

|Jerry Bransford||Common problem. Spray the rubber boot on the firewall with white lithium grease where the steering shaft passes through it.|

|InvisiblePants||My squeak is more of a moan sound. Only happens when really cold. I just hit it with some white lithium when is starts.|

|XwXCHADWICKYXwX||My steering wheel is a squeaker as well|

I can't help. But my steering wheel shaft is also squeaking. Although mine sounds like its coming more towards the interior side and not on the other side under the hood. It also seems as though its louder when its cold, in the mornings.
Everyone always asks if my steering wheel is going to fall off or if I have power stearing..... Everyone is stupid.

Squeaky Steering System
Each time I turn the steering wheel, regardless of direction, the steering system squeaks from underneath the hood. I've had another set of ears verify the location, but we can't figure out how to make it stop. I've lubed the bushing between the firewall and the cab, as well as applied white lithium grease to the nylon-appearing bushing where the steering shaft changes angles. Outside temperature doesn't seem to have any affect, as I've owned this Jeep over a year and it seems to keep getting sqeakier. Please help!
