    Arrow Slight Wine while turning.

    I have noticed that I am getting a little whine when I turn. It sound like the noise you get when you turn the wheels lock to lock.It sound louder while I'm parked than when I'm driving and then it's really not that loud. I have checked my reservoir and it's ok and there isn't any leaks around the PS pump or rack and pinion underneath.Could the PS pump be going bad? Thanks

    Put the front end on jack stands,took off the wheels and didn't see anything leaking. Turned the steering wheel lock to lock and there was NO noise.No whinning,no grinding,etc. Put the wheels back on and drop the car,noise is back.

    Took the car to the local mechanic. He didn't think it was the ps pump. He thinks it's the upper ball joint. He went ahead and greased evrything to see if it stops,if not i'll replace the upper ball joint.
