Steering wheel squeaks loudly when turning left...
I've got a 92 eg8 and my steering wheels squeeks pretty loudly whenever I turn left. It ONLY happens when I turn left, and it ALWAYS happens when its cold outside. In the middle of the summer I don't really notice it, so if its happening then its a lot quieter. It isn't any harder to turn than usual and I've noticed no other problems with it, but its really annoying and embarrasing if I have passengers in the car. Anyone know what this could be?
EDIT: For clarification, the sound is coming from behind the steering wheels somewhere. There is nothing wrong with the suspension/tierods or anything, and it can only be heard inside the cab.

with the key all the way to the on position(this will release the steering lock)
have a friend turn the steering wheel left while you stick your head under the wheel and see where the noise is coming from.
i had a loose bolt under there before, can't remember if it made any noise, but it was just loose, and I think it was somehow attached to a spring on the steering rack.
that could be your problem, that spring might be compressing and decompressing when you turn left.
