Steering Wheel Squeak

Looking for some info no a Noise I just started noticing since it started getting COLDER here. Seems everytime I make a hard right or left turn my Steering Wheel is creaking or squeaking. Doesn't seem like a big problem. Checked Fluids and everything looks fine. It actually sounds like it is coming from the inside of the Jeep. Any Ideas? not sure if this is a easy fix or not. Thanx.

Spray the steering shaft with a silicone lubricant where it passes through the rubber bushing in the firewall. Spray it from the passenger-compartment side. This is a common problem that the silicone will fix, at least for several years when it will need to be done again.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

Yeah my 97 is doing the same thing. I was gonna post the same question yesterday but forgot. I'm not worrying about it too much, unless somebody else says otherwise.

Do exactly what Jerry says and you will have no more squeak. Nothing will be harmed if you don't get around to lubing it anytime soon.
