The noise is only when the steering wheel goes to the right or straight. There is no noise when you make a left hand turn.

    Could be the rack and pinion if your impala came with a rack because I see a steering gear comes with the soft ride suspension option ( FE1 ) or the right front cv shaft is beginning to fail.

    It could also be the bearing going bad. I had that same problem and it was the bearing going out that caused the noise.
