      Anyone having an issue with creaking noises while going slow and turning?

      Could be that your ball joints are wearing out, though its a new truck...

      Is it only when turning? Any particular direction or both?
      Have you checked your Power steering fluids?

      I'm going to listen and wait until I hit 1,000 miles, then I will contact the dealer. It could be perfectly normal, like the ABS brake noise some people have had in their 2011's. I was just hoping to hear from other folks that may be experiencing the same thing.

      Yup, mine is making a squeaking/grinding noise when I go over a speed bump really slow. It happens when the suspension compresses.

      Going into the Dealer this week.

      Please post again when you are done at the dealer. I'm curious what the problem is.

      Determine if only when turning in one direction, that info will help to pinpoint problem.
