Default creeking noise when backing out/turning wheel at slow speeds

When I back out I get this creeking sound coming from under the car consistant with when the steering wheel is turned, any ideas about what this is from?

Is it when your wheel is turned all the way to one side? If so, I get that too.

Check the rubber gromits, I use spray silicon around all gromits. The exhaust system is attached by a series of gromits to the body. Rubber dries out, silicon will quiet things down. My TI makes a little bit of noise becasue my muffler sways a little bit, but the silicon will quiet everything down. When you ahve the wheels off, spray all joints and rubber with silicon. My father is a locomtive mechanic for the railroad, he swears by the stuff and it's made a serious difference. Try it.
Also, it might be a warped rotor, or the metal protection plate behind the rotor might be bent. This isn't a big deal since it's sheet metal and can be hand bent back into place.
