Steering "creaking" noise when turning slowly - 07 4.3
I posted a similar question a while back and am checking again to see if anyone (new) has experienced this issue. For what it's worth, Im in Canada (not that it would make a diff).
Anyways, I have the V6 Sport 4.3 (07). After a few months in, I noticed that when turning slowly (eg parking, going in and out of my driveway etc), that the steering column creaks. It sounds like it is coming from either the steering column or the steering components / left front area. I took it to a local dealer 2 months ago, and after a frikking day in the shop, they claim they could not hear anything.. I dragged the CSR out and drove him around in it - of course it was there and obvious.
The problem is always there, and does not matter if its cold or hot out. Anyone else experience this issue? I have not seen any related TSB's... It is not the same as the steering knock that I have heard others describe. This sound ocurrs for the duration of my turning the steering wheel at slow speeds.
