Squeaking come from steering wheel

There is a weird squeaking and clanking noise I think coming from the steering wheel every-time I slow down to turn or reverse. Thought it might be the wheel bearing but got it fixed and the noise still continues.

Could be worn out bushings. Lay under car and have a friend turn wheel. See if u can narrow it down to specific area.
Also make sure everything's tight.

Yeah I was thinking it may be worn out bushings or control arms? Do you know how much it would cost if I need new control arms?

Check eBay. I'm thinking $200. Bout 30 or 40 for bushings

Yeah I'm going to bring it to ford, hopefully they can look at it for me without charging. I think it's either the control arms or the bushings? Idk

I doubt that they will do that. Most likely they are going to charge you. But who knows call them and ask.

New OEM is $160 a piece on eBay. Lots of used for $60. Summitracing on eBay has a set for 215. Definitely make sure that's what it is. That's kinda pricey.

Spray bushings with wd40 (1 at a time) to see if they quit.

Yeah I know ford is such a peice of **** about diagnosing problems without charging..idk though my brakes are acting funny and there fine just got them looked at and got the wheel bearing changed, the handling sucks and steering wheel is loose, and also creacking/squeaking when I turn the wheel to slow down or in reverse and when I get out of the car I hear a creaking noise
