Default Screetch/Squeak when turning steering wheel while car not moving.

Anyone in the SE got some insight here? It has probably happened three times in the past 2 weeks.

While not moving or ~1mph or so, and generally with my foot on the brake, the car will make a high pitch screetch (almost sound like metal on metal or wiper on a dry windsheild) when turning the steering wheel to the left.

Power steering pump/fluid?
Some budshings somewhere?

I have noticed no decrease in performance. Just the noise.

Let me know if you got any ideas

Thanks

Chris

If the screaching only happens when you apply pressure to the wheel, it's prolly your PS reservoir is empty, in which case I would fill it ASAP if you don't want to have to buy a new power steering pump.

update: Power steering is fine.

I think it is also a brake thing. Someone that rode with me said it could be the bearing in my suspension top hats. I think until it gets more serious or I notice some sort of performance or safety issue, I will not worry too much.
