1500 2WD PICK-UP STEERING NOISE

2001 Dodge Ram

My truck has a squeky, binding kind of sound coming out of the right front when you turn the wheel in either direction. Also, if you press down on the right front you hear a loud squeking sound. Steering still seems ok accept for loud squeking. Truck only has 45,000 miles on it.

Has the truck been lubed? Some of the newer stuff doesnt have zerk(grease) fittings. The Fords are famous for noise due to dry ball joints. Check the wheel bearing just to eliminate it as a possibility.I have drilled the ball joints and insatlled many zerks, so that is an option if you plan to keep the truck for a long time
