Im guessing its out of warranty. Heres a link to what another lexus owner did to fix the creaking steering colum, its on a GS model but might work for the SC since all lexus cars seem to make the noise after several years. You can also check with your local dealer to see if they are offering any recalls on the issue. http://www.clublexus.com/forums/gs-second-generation/358484-squeaking-steering-column-here-s-my-3-solution.html

Thanks for the lead. I fixed the problem by manually moving the column thru its entire range seneral times. This redistributed the grease and solved the problem. After reading your lead I had an idea where to go to fix it so thanks.
