Smile Whining steering wheel noise solved

shortly after I purchased the car after it sat in cold damp snowy outside weather for several weeks, the steering wheel would make a whining noise like zipping a zipper or rubbing two pieces of jeans together when I wheeled it around. I had the intermediate shaft repaired (which fixed the clunking) and it seems to have cured the noise problem about 90%. I still notice it sometimes. It is alot better though. I also think as the car dried out in my heated garage and got some use on it the problem may have resolved.
