Default Weird squeak on Impreza?

Our 2000 Impreza 2.5RS started squeaking when turning left or turning right, but it was more of a rubber-against-rubber squeak sound. I checked it out close and there was nothing that the weheel was rubbing on either side and the sound seemed to come from the CV boots. The boots looked fine and there are no holes or tears.

It might sound dumb, but I oiled/greased the outside of the CV boots and the sound went away a little. Now the car seems to be doing it going straight and turning.

Any ideas what else it might be if it is not actually the CV boots?

Thanks
Jim

I completely cleaned the CV boots and it went away for a little after I soaked them with ArmorAll, but it came back a day later.

It squeaks with the turning of the wheels and happens turning left and sometimes going straight.

I know it is the boots now. How much is it to get boots replaced?
