Steering noise

Does anyone elses Steering feel "grimy" or "Creaky"? It also makes a whiny noise that is hard to hear when the truck is cold but gets significantly louder as the trucks warms up. I had the truck in 4 times to the dealer before they finally replaced the steering box, it worked perfectly after that but 8000km later it started doing it again intermittently. I am hesitant to take it in again because of the trouble the techs had finding a problem the first time. The performance hasn't been affected but the noise especially the creaky feel drives me and my wife nuts.

Heyy man, My truck had an horrible noise when I would turn the wheel also. It didnt feel like it was different feeling turning but I took off the Stabilizer thinking that might be bad but it wasnt that. I noticed that some of the fitting on the tie rod and such looked very dry so I greased them with a greased the fittings, put the truck up in the air and turned the truck on moving the steering back and fourth with no weight and it took care of the problem.
