2002 Mustang GT Front End Noise

My 2002 Mustang GT has a moaning or tire rub sound when I make medium to high speed turns. Have replaced rack & pinion bushings, Struts and bushings, front wheel bearings and lubed all other bushings. The tires are stock and are not rubbing anything. Sometimes I can hear the sound when I make fast lane changes on the expressway. Any ideas what could cause this sound?

The car has 18000 miles. Would a bad rack & pinion cause this.

Thanks,
2002MGT

Check your rear bearings and brakes too. Problems with the rear end can make sounds too when loaded from turns as well unless your certain the noise is from the front.

Hi
It could be a ball joint. Check them for excessive play. Or as you say, it could be the steering rack inner or outer tie-rod ends. But before changing any of these I'd try removing the stabilizer bar and driving it to see if the noise goes away or gets worse.
