94 Ford crown vic. steering noises

Hi! thanx for all on help with rough idle on 94 crown vic - was a vacuum
line. This car has intermittently squealed and groaned when turning - it
comes and goes. Steering effort is maybe a bit harder - bled the pump,
etc. but can find nothing obvious. I have heard other fords on the road
with the same noise , though not as bad as this one .Doesnt look like any
excess paly in front end parts. Any help would be appreciated! thanx,
bob d.

Power steering pump is the likely culprit. The solution is to replace it.

What condition is the belt in, new or old? How about the belt tension?
For the price of a new belt not much to lose in replacing it first
before anything else.

Hi! Thanx for the reply - doesnt sound like a belt-type squeal, more of a
loud groan - and squeal! The belt is new and tensioner seems fine. thanx,
bob d.

Just for kicks, lube up the steering stops on the lower control arms.
I've had lots of complaints of noise while turning that came down to this.
CVs grunt, groan, squeak on (full lock) turns. The lower control arms have
protrusions which contact the spindles on full turns. The motion of the suspension
allows these 2 parts to rub together causing noise when dry.
Look on the back side of the lower control arms for a V shaped bracket protruding
out. Slather grease on this point.

Hi! Injected some grease into the right upper ball joint ,and noise is
almost gone - must be out of grease, but not loose yet, thankfully. Thanx
to all for the help. bob d.
