I have a 1996 VW jetta gls and I had the rack and pinion replaced about 8mo ago. I then noticed a squeak or chirp in my steering when I turn the wheel "to park" or I can just turn the car on and turn the wheel, I then hear squeaking. It doesnt come on when I start the car only when pulling into or out of a parking spot and when driving through grocery store parking lot. Also I notice when I drive over water the steering wheel will get tighter/stiffer. What is the problem so I dont pay the mechanic an arm or leg. Please help. Dont know if this is a noise category or suspension category.
