Squeaky steering

Not been having much luck lately, a new noise appeared yesterday from the front of the car when turning the steering wheel. Didn't seem suspension related. An odd rubbery type sound...

I got it up on axle stands and the noise disappeared when the suspension wasn't under load. I dropped it back down and the noise had gone (!!).

I think it must have been something causing the rack gaitors to rub against the chassis (stone/road debris/etc).

Either that or the Elise got scared of me going at it with a spanner so has decided to fix itself ":-D"

On another note, I'm still waiting for the insurance assessor's report about the damage to the clam but it shouldn't be too long.
