Do the steering rack's bushings need to be replaced at some point? My Durango's front end makes knocking sounds when doing slow but sharp turns. I've checked upper and lower control arms, ball joints, tie rods and everything seems to be OK. However, I checked the steering rack and I saw the bushings that go with the bolts they don't seem to be good so, they don't look round, they look more deformed.

There was a recall on on the right steering knuckle on some 2007 Durango and Aspens. I have listed the recall below. If you PM me your VIN I can tell you if this recall pertains to your vehicle and if it was ever performed if it does apply.

Are you hearing a knocking sound, or more like a "creaking" sound. I have a 2006 Durango and I am hearing noises while turning (but also going over bumps/rough terrain). Could bad bushings be my issue as well?
