2008 Ford Mustang ProblemsCreak/pop noise when turning
A creak/pop noise while turning may mean that updated steering rack bushing tubes need to be installed.
The synchronizer shaft for the camshaft position sensor can cause a loud squeak or chirping noise due to failure of the upper bushing. The noise may be erratic and is usually present when the engine is warm.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
