solution...maybe

My steering began to creak recently as well. Kind of a cross between a creak and a scrape type of thing. Took it in to my dealership here to have it looked at. Turned out to be a faulty clock spring. Replace that and it's fine again. The clock spring is how they allow the wiring from the airbag, stereo controls, cruise control, etc.... go from the steering wheel down the shaft without them binding up. Don't know if this is the same issue you are having but figured I would mention it since it did sound similar. Took the guys here about 2 hours to do everything from diagnosing to fixing.
