gnarly squeaking noise coming from rack when i turn steering wheel

maybe ill get some help here. i came home from a ride saturday and noticed it. its definitely coming from the rack. i only have hd ball joints on the bottom arms, everything else is heim joints including tie rods. it sort of sounds like something is rubbing? where should i start to get this annoying noise to go away? help an idiot out

im gonna try to get some video of it up asap.

I think ole Squeeky has a heim that was froze up. I would start there and see what you find.

Is it an XMF kit?

From the looks of it, it's the upper A-arm ball joint. Disconnect, passenger side of the tie rod. Just requires the removal of one bolt (easy). Turn the wheel by hand and see if start to squeak. If it does it upper A arm ball joint.

FYI .....squeaking is my turf...so back off...(JK)
