coud be a bad shock, or weak springs also, your wheels may have the wrong back spacing on them as well, turn your tires and see where the contact is occuring,

Could a possible tie rod make a rubbing sound?


Well, it should not!
Tie rod ends are usually at least 2 inches away from the tires so that, in the event of a tire failure, the steering of the car will not be compromised.
That being said, look for a "fairing" or a "splash shield" that has broken loose from its attachments and is rubbing.
Putting your car on a "frame hoist" will likely not allow you to see the rubbing piece, but a "drive-on hoist" may very well show it to you. Once you get the car into the air, look for anything shiny that has been rubbing.
God bless your efforts.

Might consider in lifting the front end and securing on jack stands. Then check your ball joints, tie rod ends and other related steering components. May also want to check your bushing in your control arms, if present.
May also want to check your strut mounts.

Power steering fluid leaking 89 buick park avenue


look for loose hoses just tighten down
look for cracked hoses they could be spraying fluid when under pressure.
The rack is sealed with boots on each end where the tie rods come out.
they crack or could be rubbing on something.

A have a 2001 gmc Denali when I dreve for a long time and tray to turn eder way it makes braking noise on the front weels


Check wheels and steering for loose parts, wheel, hub/bearing, check to make sure all nuts and bolts are tight, Check Inner and outer CV joints for damaged boots and make sure the hub nut is tight. Grease the components that have grease fittings, tie rod ends and ball joints usually. Check the brake calipers for tight mountings, the upper ball joints should be inspected for wear, as should any steering linkage component. Also check suspension arms for worn or degraded bushings, upper and lower, and that their mounting bolts are tight to frame.

Also look for plastic parts that are loose- it they can move close to a tire, they may be a possible source of the noise as well. Including a dust shield rubbing against the steering shaft- llok for bright areas where something may be rubbing against it.

Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack you car up and check for play in the bearings and tie rods. bearings will be up and down, tie rods will be left to right. There should be no play in either. Just a suggestion!
