Strange Sound When Backing Up????

I replaced both the tie-rods and the steering rack bushings and a couple weeks ago I heard a creaking, squealing sound once or twice when slowly backing up. I thought it was my power steering system which is out. Could it be something else? I'm starting to get worried.

Checked the brakes and calipers and they are ok. I'm still gonna put new rotors and pads on the rear since I haven't done it yet. I havent' heard that sound again though.
