    If it is a groaning type of noise then check your power steering fluid.

    "Weird noise" could be anything, we need a better description of the noise. Scraping, grinding, groaning, squeaking, ticking etc.

    Just as a thought, what size rims you running.
    I had this problem however mine was due to leaking power stearing fluid but as im running 20" on hard turns the wheels rub on the platic engin bay gard stuff.
