I just did a lazy flush, pulled the rack line, ran some fluid thru it running, closed it up ran it, flushed it again. Took under 30 minutes. Worked like a champ after that with well over 300K on all steering components. I think power steering flush is out of most peoples thoughts for maintenance.
Interesting. I've got no PS pump whine and it just all of a sudden started doing it so I don't think that's what caused it, but this is a good reminder to flush mine and clean the screen anyway.

I got it aligned yesterday and it seems like it's much better but I did get a little groan/creak out of it when I was trying to replicate it. I'll try to remember to shoot a short video and put it on youtube tomorrow.

you said it did it when only partially turned, but it sounds like it may be the steering stops. 1 half of which is built into the lower ball joint. it may just need a bit of grease.

Sounds like your steering rack bushings, especially if you can get to the point where it creaks, then move it off and back on duplicating the creak.

Ugh I hope not, but that sounds plausible. I replaced them last year with poly bushings and it was such an annoying job. I'd almost just rather deal with the creak than do that again haha.
