Noise when turning Steering Wheel

I tried searching both this forum and google and couldn't find anything conclusive.

Sometimes when I turn my steering wheel (seemingly more often than not in the morning when its a bit chilly) it will make a strange noise. The noise eminates from the back of the wheel. Its a low noise that is similar to dragging an eraser across a table (best I could come up with :P ).

Any ideas?

Sounds like the internal friction of the rack and pinion when it is cold that is telegraphing up the shaft and you are hearing/feeling it through the steering wheel causing a resonation like an eraser on the table.

Many on this forum have had this situation, and have used the QuantumBlue Steering System Lubricant Catalyst that you can add to the reservoir (2 oz per system) which will permanently lubricate the centering bushing, condition the outer cup seals, and the spool valve seals that are made of PTFE....or as some know as Teflon (R). Comes in a 6 oz bottle (3 treatments) for $12.99. One of the best and easiest fixes for these cars.

The moan that comes from the pump when turning is eliminated as well. Here is a link to explain more.

I have the same noise in the morning but I believe it's coming from the steering wheel itself, goes away after awhile.
