steering box going out?
Recently I started hearing some creaking when i turn my steering wheel. Not the minor sounds of power steering but more like metal creaking sounds. Also, while im driving the steering wheel will seam kinda 'stuck' and kind of hard to move either way. If I just move it a bit either direction it loosens up and feels normal again. Would this be the steering box or what? Thx in advance guys!

I would suggest first greasing the tie rod ends and ball joints. See if that's a cure. My front end recently started creaking when I turn while the Jeep is stopped. Reliable mechanic told me it's a Jeep thing, not a problem, just springs etc. shifting. But I'm not experiencing the "stuck" problem you are.
