Creaking noise when I turn left or right.

Either way I turn the noise is getting worst. Brought it to the indy and he thinks it's the rack. The creaking came after some hard full turns. Any other causes?

Hi, i had a similar noise and to fix it the dealer lubricated the splines on the steering shaft at the u joint. This makes the noise go away fow a little while. I think to fully fix it replacing the steering shaft would be required.

They think? They have chassis ears so pin point the source of the sound shouldn't be hard.

I have a creaking/clicking noise only when I turn the wheel left, which shifts the load to the right front tire. Took it to my indy, we put it on the lift and cant see anything unusual. He said I'm slightly out of alignment and that getting a dealer alignment may help as those suspension pieces will be loosened/torqued during the procedure. He said it sounds like it could be torsion bar or end links when stressed.

I wonder if we have the same noise. I need to try to get a video of it, but I don't have a GoPro/Suction Mount...
