Is the sound coming from the steering wheel or the tire area?

i have the same noise! I was thinking it was the sterring shaft and the grinding noise are the bearing plates at the top of the struts. I still haven't tracked down the squeking noise yet. and when i go to the shop, it dosent dot it.

Had a 07 GTP coupe, traded in for my GTI....

Ya I'm pretty sure about the bearing plates...I have gone s far as not turning my wheels while I'm not moving. That has stopped my grinding noise from my bearing plates, but I still have no idea about the squeak. I was thinking it was my steering shaft.
