Stabalizer bar may be the cause of my creaking steering wheel
I had the car checked because of a creaking sound that I hear inside the car when driving slowly. I notice it when the wheel is turned. It sounds like the sounds of an old sailing ship one might hear in a movie. The mechanic stated that it is the stabalizer bar that needs to be replaced. Their quote is around $300 to do both sides and to allign the wheels afterward. My questions are - "Is this a reasonable assumption that that is the problem or do I need a second opinion? My first thought was that the steering column might be causing the sound because it is so noticeable in the car. Is the price within reason? Can I just do one side instead of two?
