I don't know man. One time I got this terrible grinding noise from my old Buick Regal when I turned it, but that's because the power steering pump was going bad. I highly doubt that's your problem. Could just be some dirt got in some bearings or something.

Mine does it all the time at parking lot speeds but its loudest mainly in the morning (a lot less noise to interfere with the sound). I believe its the steering wheel shaft rubbing on the firewall boot, this has been discussed here before and somebody suggested lubing the boot to make the whine go away, hasn't bothered me enough to try it.

As SuzukiTech provided should fix most but in the odd occurrence it does not they have also had the plastic check balls in the rack deform and cause similar noise.

FUN Huh!!

Nope no harm will be done. Just some rubber rubbing causing a touch of noise. If it does not bother you it won't bother me.

Not a safety concern just an annoyance.
