I did try spraying some grease into where the steering shaft passes through the rubber boot in the firewall like John in Charlotte described.* It didn't really help it much.* I think the sound may be either pump or rack related now.* It doesn't happen at a full lock turn of the steering wheel.* It happens even if you move the wheel a little.* Thanks again for the replies.* I will most likely bring it into the Ford dealer next week.* I'll let you know what happens.
You know what I discovered was contributing to my "rubber farting sound"??? The rubber boot thing over the plunger area was actually depressed down and was making contact inside there where it's not supposed to.... It seems that one of the alignment guys got his big feet up in there under the brake pedal and pushed my boot in...... I loosened the bolts, popped it back out and lube her up.... NO NOISE!!!! Check yours for that.

I love to work on my Taurus, my Harley, and especially my 1953 Ford Customline, which is pretty much an all original car.
Not bad for a ex-marine chick, huh?
