steering squeeks

my xa fairmont squeeks when i steer at low speeds. (Front left only)

has any one had this happen to them????

ive replaced all the rubber with nolethane except the wishbone.
when i leave it sitting for a week without driving it does stop sqeeking for a couple of days or so.
Ive tried greasing the nipples as well but this doesnt seem to work

Re: steering squeeks

Don't know if this helps but when you changed the rubber to nolethane bushes did you
have the the car up of the ground or car on the ground . When I changed the bushes on my bronco all the wheels were of the ground when I did the bolts up (handled bad) later found out that you need the car sitting on the ground for the bushes to sit right . After doing it again it was much better. I think you can twist the nol bushes
