Yeah, definitely just slapped some grease on the outside. I don't have a grease gun at the house. It doesn't matter if the car is rolling or not, it squeaks when I turn the wheel on flat ground. There aren't any pops, and I don't get any feedback into the wheel or the ride, everything is still smoot...

There isn't any slack in the steering, and no issues with ride quality. It only squeaks when I turn the wheel slowly either way. No issues going down the road or over bumps. I'll get it up on a jack tomorrow to see if there is any play in the wheel. What is a CV? ...

I currently have an Amex gold card, and have had it for about 15 months. Its $175 a year fee, and the rewards are really more geared toward airline travel which I don't utilize that much.
I just applied for an Amex blue cash preferred card which only has a $75 annual fee and has up ...
