Creaking from the front end
Sounds like the creaking bow of an old wooden ship. Only makes the sound when turning at slow speeds, or by moving the steering wheel left and right in the driveway.
-I've jacked the car and let the wheels hang: couldn't determine which side it was on as the sound was uniform.
-SAAB dealer said it was most likely the sway bar end links so I replaced them (they were pretty shot..) Sound is still there.
-SAAB dealer inspected all suspension components: all checks out apparently.
Could it be something in the steering column?
