Could be damaged servo or servo horn/saver. Take the servo out and remove it from any steering or horns and see if it still makes the noise. If so the servo is hurt, if no noise then look at ur threads in the servo horn and on the servo and see if they look stripped. Then once everything is replaced dont just put every thing back on assuming its all centered. What you do is install the servo, but dont put the steering horn back on yet. Then you turn your radio on then the car and this will center your servo. Turn the car off then radio and put ur servo horn on with the tires as straight a possible then screw the hown down. Now turn the radio and car back on and you should have 100% steering again. Hope this helped.

You should post a lot more detail, which would make it easier to help you. Depending on many things, it may be a matter of driving it different, or it could be your set-up. List more information in your post and that will help everyone whittle it down to the proper solution.

Tell everyone your skill level (beginner is OK), and when you're having problems with the steering. Is the truck stock, or have you made changes to the set-up. If so, what did you change? Exactly where is the truck not steering? Anywhere, or in certain sections of a track? Corner entry, corner exit, big sweepers, tight 180-degree turns? You get the hint I'm sure. More info from you means better answers that will help to solve your issues.
