Thanks guys,

But this noise is definitely not CV joints.  I have done those on another
car and know exactly what that feels like.  This noise is like turning a rod
in a rubber sleeve  without much lubrication (get your mind out the gutter)
its kinda like a deep moan, like opening an old barn door.  I'm pretty sure
its the top mounts or some other pivoting mechanism that takes place when
one turns the steering wheel.

Thanks again

Hi Limo,
this sounds like the "CV joint" farewell. If you hear something like "Click,
click" (loud) in the low speed and hard turning. That's almost everytime it.
It is not good idea to let it be, because while it break you'll be no more
to drive till exchanged...
The bearing makes noise all the time.
New CV Joint is about $150 non original. Repair is easy to medium with
proper tools. Just one pain is to get down the old CV Joint (it is locked on
the axle by "C" spring. So one soft hammer punch over wood will "click" it
It took me about 2 hours.
