Creaking Sound When Turning Steering Wheel

Hey guys. Own a 2003 Ranger, 4WD. 123,000 miles, all original factory except for plugs, brakes, Ford OEM condensor (dealer installed), and passenger airbag turnoff switch.

When I turn my steering wheel, I get the creak. Sounds like it is from inside the cab. Before I posted, I read many of the similar posts on the site. I know I am due for new ball joints, but could the squeak be coming from steering column despite well worn ball joints?

I have the same issue. I think it's just something in column that needs to be greased
