rubber steering bushings?

I have noticed on my '03 LT that the front steering sounds like it has rubber bushings that squeak when I move the handle bars. Is this normal or something I should be concerned about? It was garaged most of the winter and now it is noticeable. And I can't remember if it did that before all the snow hit here.

It's normal, there's a rubber boot under the "front" of the stingray that rubs when you turn the handlebars, you can spray something like WD40 in there and it will stop for a couple of days

The LT is always a bit squeaky . More noticable when cold and damp.
