sweeky steering

My 2000 3.0 4x4 Ranger sounds like an old rusty door when I turn the wheel is there a grease fitting on the steering column?

Most likely your Power Steering pump is going out.

Is the sound inside or outside the truck? if outside check your ball joints they make a similar sound when dry and the factory units are not grease able i had to replace mine.

Good point! Fords and Rangers are notorious for both.
