Front end Noise ??????

Need some help here every time i turn my stearing wheel I get the old screech like I have a tie rod end that needs greased but I still have the stock ones on and no grease zerks so is there a replacement so I can grease the front end or do I have to just replace them. My car is a '01 with 41,000 miles on it. It doesn't do it right away but after 3 miles of driving then it does it. Will have to get out and make sure it is not the rack n pinion but I think it is a TR end. Any suggestions?

Ford has a tsb out on this, not sure exactly what it is but I believe it has to do with the tie rod ends.

Re: Front end Noise ??????

My 01 GT had the same squeek that you are describing at 39000 miles. Turned out to be the ball joint so I got a greese needle from Autozone and filled the ball joint up and the squeek has not returned and I now have 70000 on it. I have also read that the tie rods have the same problem with the same fix.

check your power steering fluid. If its low it will make noises. My DD 99 grand prix made horrible noises. I put some PS fluid in it and it was perfect again.... they said they checked it when I had the oil changed (LIARS!) its in a pita place to get to so they didnt even try I am sure...

I have an 03 GT and my rack bushings started to creak real bad at about 35k. I was unaware of the TSB, but I replaced them myself and the problem went right away. But right now at 52k I have the creak back. I put polyurethane bushings in so that CANT be the problem considering they are only 2 years old! I'm figuring that it is either the ball joint or the steering rack. Its primarily coming from the drivers side. The tie rod ends are strong also. Sounds like its coming from the boot at the end of the rack on the D side. Its weird that the other poster said his doesnt make a sound within the first few miles...MINE TOO! Then it starts making the noise. One more thing b4 I start really rambling...It could make the noise once I sit at a red light and turn the wheel both ways...and once I hit the next red light, I could turn the wheel with NO noise to the left or right. Anybody else have this scenario?
