Last night I jacked the car up - found a completely torn tie rod boot.  Put
some chain lube in there to see what would happen - totally quiet today  -
so looks like I need a tie rod end.

Subject: [Biturbos4] Squeaking & Creaking

Today my passenger side front suspension started to squeak and creak (S&C)
very loudly whenever I turn the wheel to the right from center.  Does not
S&C when returning to center, nor does it S&C when turning left or returning
to center from left.  Only passenger side.  Now this particular side of the
suspension was replaced about 90 days ago thanks to a little encounter with
a curb during an ice storm. Seems a little early for control arm issues -
but here we are.  I'll try to get somebody to help with a 2-person
inspection tonight but in the meantime figured I'd blast some questions
So anyway - plain old premature control arm death? Is there a particular one
prone to this behavior?  bushing?  Any BTDT?
