Grind sound when turning right?

Help me troubleshoot this real quick, im making a 3000 miles drive this weekend.

Whenever i turn to the right, there is a grind sound. Its not constant. It only happens when the steering wheel is at a certain spot. It makes the grinding sound when i pass over that certain angle, and when i go over it again to straighten the wheel out.

If i hold the wheel in place where it makes the grinding sound, it doesnt continue to grind.


When it first started happening, it was just a little knick sound. Now when i do it, the grind is fairly noticeable, and i can feel it slightly in the steering wheel.


I just got all my ball joints replaced. Could a dry bearing be the culprit?

Try lubing the lower steering shaft where it goes threw the fire wall. There is a bearing there that gets dry and worn. You can feel the rubber boot with one hand and turn the steering wheel with the other to make sure that is it....
