Steering columb noise

Hi, my steering column is making a rubbing sound when turning. It still feels free and turns easily , but I'm wondering if we need to lube a steering column.I never have on any other car but ya never know.
Have you had this happen with your Focus?

Thanks
Gary

It's probably not the column it's probably your strut or the bearing plate on the strut or possibly the end link on the sway bar, if any of those go out it can create some noise when turning, mine does that on my 01 a bit but I know my strut is bad just haven't replaced it yet.
