I had mine in the shop for a week. They tried first oiling whatever mechanism that moved . Then they ordered some new bushings for the steering column. Then they just replaced the whole steering column /rack. I would have loved to find out what the actual problem / rubbing was. My squealing kittens only happened when turning to one side so they initially thought I was power steering or rack and pinion.
