Stretching Like Noise

Hey all,
After researching on Google I'm not a 100% sure what the problem is, I believe it might be the CV joints. I noticed the noise when I slowly turned into a parking space. I turned my wheel all the way to the right (and left) and slowly back up and it sounds like a stretching sound. I don't hear any metal noises. Maybe like a squeaky spring slowly being released. Has anyone ever had something close to this?

Thanks for the help!

Or the whining/labored sound the steering rack makes when you reach the end of its travel? Again, not a big deal.

I'm kinda thinking that your tires have nothing to do with what you explained. Maybe one of you brake rotor shields is rubbing on the rotor when you do a sharp turn. Do you only hear this while turning to one side or either way you turn. May also be a sign of imminent bearing failure. You might start to hear bearing noise in the near future.

Hey Coby,
In May I had my hub bearing and rotors changed in the front both sides. I hear the noise when I do a sharp turn on both sides..

Yeah, they might have accidentally bent the sheilds to close to rotors. It happens you know they use ball peen hammers to loosen stuff and you just need a mis-hit, hit the sheild a bit and there you go you cause a problem without knowing you even touched the sheild. Sheild should be about a 1/4" away from the rotor all the way around.

Is there anything I should do to the shield? I changed my front brakes last Thursday and lost my lug nut key lol so I'll have to wait until my order comes in to remove the wheel :(

No need to remove the wheel. Put it upon the hoist and just check the shield clearance.
