When I turn the steering wheel back and forth at idle I get a chatter like noise

(1999 Chevrolet Astro)
The noise then progressed to when the brakes are actuated.It doesn't do it when the vehicle is cold starts to happen after maybe 7 to 10 miles of driving. Does it when its stopped or at very slow speeds. Goes away when your over 10mph

Thanks hemicuda. I was very frustrated with this sight when they were making changes and left and tried 2carguys. What a mistake. They say they will send the techs that answer questions a shirt, never got one. Would also pay for answers and follow ups, never happened. Came back here and found the sight is still a bit different but is very close to original format and very user and tech friendly. Good to be back. Still see some of the people ask questions because they just don't want to do any digging before get here. Heck half my info I send out I go to internet to find. I like to help but feel better when the posters at least try. One guy even thinks that I have stock in repair manuals being recommended when I see a guy wanting obscure specs or R&R step by step procedures on an older vehicle. Heck if you got older out of warranty vehicle and try to do your own work then get a manual to help you with info and pics. They are around $25 to $35. One guy was into a timing belt job on a Pathfinder that he was doing for a friend or customer and then was stuck and did not do his due dilligence before tearing down and wanted obscure specs that could be easily found in that cheap manual. Anyways good to be back and will soldier on.
