Loud creaking/rubbing noise in front end
My 01 PSD blew the powersteering hose right after I got it. It drenched the entire engine compartment and front underside of my truck with fluid. I fixed the hose and washed everything down as best as possible with a hose. Not a high pressure just a garden hose. I used some diluted simple green to help some areas, mainly on the painted surfaces.
A few days later I noticed a loud noise squeek/metal rubbing noise from the front of the truck. It sounds like it is coming from the front drivers side. It happens while going over a bump at low speed. Like a speed bump in a parking lot or the entry to my driveway. I have taken it in for an oil change and mentioned it, they said they lubed it real well. I have also had the front end aligned and they said they didnt see anything wrong.
I know sounds are hard to describe but it really soungd like an old rusty metal spring. I have tried to spray some penetrating oil on a few areas to try to see if the sound changed or stopped and no luck.
Anyone have any good ideason what to look for?
