Squeak to the left

I recently purchased a 2007 Ford Ranger. When I make a tight turn to the left it makes a creaking noise(not a power steering noise). It's almost like a rumbling feeling. I feel it through the steering column as well when this happens, almost as if something is loose. It later developed a creak when coming to a stop, a little bit louder than the original sound. I took it in and they found there was a loose strut. The squeak/grunt when coming to a stop has stopped, but the original noise when turning tight left is still there. Is this something to worry about, or is that just the way of the Ranger. I also have a 95 B2300 and it has never made this noise. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Front wheel bearing?

I'd make the dealer tech ride along and walk beside it to listen to it.

Also, this noise (which my wife describes more as a knock) has also started to occur when turning to the right. And if I didn't mention before, I mostly notice it at lower speeds (when driving through our apt. parking lot). I'll make sure the tech hear's it this time (thanks Earl). Thanks.
