When turning the steering wheel, particularly ie in parking lot, slow driving (don't notice on fwy) there is a very clear binding/almost grinding noise from immediately behind the steering wheel and under the dash. Does not seem to be beyond firewall. I don't know how else to describe. I just recently aquired the car, the noise was not there for the first month. In that time I have replaced the upper strut mounts/bushings. Any help will be appreciated. Please/thank you.

There can be several things, but an inspection of the steering shaft should find the issue. It may just be the rubber boot at the firewall is dislodged. Have someone turn the steering wheel while listening for the noise.
