Cracking and creeking steering noise

Basically the first drive of the day in my car is smooth sailing, no noises no creeking whatsoever. However as the car gets driven and say I park at a gas station for a few minutes and then get back in, my steering makes this god awful noise (inside car only and cannot be heard from the outside). Not only can it be heard but the floorboard of the car literally shakes from steering my car. It will only do it once I drive it, park it for a few minutes, and then get back into it to drive. Also I am lowered on sr springs with iso's if that will help with anything.

Could be the steering rack or, maybe, just the steering rack bushings. Put the front of the car on jack stands and crawl under and have a look while you have someone turn the steering wheel.

Also forgot to mention it does it when coming to a complete stop also. All started right after I installed springs

Possibly the A-arm bushings then.
Depending on the miles on your car, EVERYTHING could be suspect.
Another thing to look at is the strut bushings AND the struts.
Like I said, check everything.

Thank you sir, I was suspecting either struts, or a arm bushings I'll hop under her tomorrow and see if I can pinpoint it. Thanks again!
