2009 Shelby creaking when turning

She is making a strange creaking/rubbing noise when turning left in 2nd gear. Just got the car last Thursday. 3700 miles. Dealership states that I bought the car as is and that there is nothing wrong with it. Any ideas as to what this may be.

Let's move this here and see if we can get you some help. Do you know if the car is lowered? At least on the regular GTs the strut mounts were weak plastic pieces and would make a popping sound when turning at slow speeds. This might not be what you're describing though.

Keep us posted!

Is it actually "creaking", or making a dying whale type of groan on tight turns..? The groaning from the rear end is normal for the carbon fiber diff clutches... They all do it. Temporary fix is to do some gentle figure 8s. When you get on it hard again though, the diff clutches are jammed together, and it'll make the groan.
