Default stock struts..

Does anyone know if it's normal for a 99 Galants struts to make noise when I first drive the car? I'll start it in the morning and let her run for around 5 minutes to heat up and than when I hop in to drive her I cut the wheel and it makes this weird noise. I'm not even sure if it's the struts but it's coming from around the wheel well area. It's almost like a squeaking noise. I know I going to need new struts once I put the springs on but as for now the noise is making me wonder. Anybody have any ideas... I appreciate it

Does it squeak more on bumpy roads?

And just curious, why do you need toheat up your car for 5 minutes every morning? That sounds excessive to me.

no it doesn't do it more on bumpy roads, it's not really a squeak. it's hard to explain but w/e. and i don't think that heating my car up is excessive..? wouldn't you rather drive a car that is warmed up? i dont sit there and count 5 minutes i just wait until its warm and drive it... i don't see how thats excessive at all.. don't you heat your car up??
