Have you checked power steering fluid? It sounds like it may be low.

That was my first thought but fluid level is fine.
This is a video of how it sounds.

I listened to the video. It almost sounds like a ball joint or something that needs grease. Is there any resistance in the steering?

It's the lower control arm bushing. They looked dry so I sprayed them with WD40 and the noise stopped for a day. Came back the next day but only a litte bit. Today no noise at all. Guess I'll be looking for parts.

Thanks much for replying to my post. Duck tape and WD40 will cure almost any problem. : )
